Short Video of Pte. Terence Joseph McMahon Commemoration Day.

On Saturday July 15th 2017 Balbriggan & District Historical Society hosted a Commemoration in honour of Terence Mc Mahon from Balbriggan who took part in the Siege of Jadotville in the Congo in 1961. The heroic efforts of the 155 soldiers of the 35th Battalion UN forces who held out against an opposition force of 3000 has only recently been acknowledged.

Balbriggan & District Historical Society would like to acknowledge the generous support for this project from Fingal County Council and Heritage Officer Gerry Clabby.
