The Mayo Commemoration Strategy 2013–2023 sets out a list of actions that will be undertaken over the 10 year period to commemorate the events of the decade 1913–1923. This strategy does not seek to duplicate other work that has already been carried out, but seeks to build on and compliment commemoration events that are being planned elsewhere by other bodies. The strategy also aims to encourage and initiate new research, and to raise awareness of research relating to the period that has already been undertaken. This research will inform events that will take place during the commemorative period. Mayo County Council intend to mark the period with one major event for each year, along with a number of smaller events, and also to support events planned by other groups in the county. Each year an annual work programme will be developed which will set out the commemorative events that will take place during that year.
