Probus Wreath

Remembrance Sunday 08 November 2020: Probus Wreath

The Remembrance Day parade to the Cenotaph for the laying of poppy wreaths in memory of the fallen was cancelled in 2020 as a result of restrictions imposed by Government in response to the Coronavirus Pandemic.   This year those organisations and individuals that would normally have attended a church service 10.00am and afterwards paraded to the War Memorial were advised by the British Legion not to attend at 11.00 am but to bring their wreaths to the cenotaph sometime during the course of the day.   This was done to avoid congestion and any possible spread of the virus.  The photos below show President, Mr Michael Cooney, laying a wreath on behalf of Omagh Probus Club.
