Argentina Day 2024

The Admiral Brown Society, Mayo County Council and the Argentine Embassy are delighted to welcome the Argentine community living in Ireland and the people of Foxford to their 247th Commemorations of the birth of Admiral Brown on Saturday 22 June 2024.

The Argentinian Ambassador HE Ana Cachaza and the HE Papal Nuncio Luis Mariana Montemayor will attend. The papal nuncio will celebrate Mass at 12noon.  Afterwards there will be a wreath laying ceremony on Chapel Road, a walk to the Admiral Brown Promenade and a reception.

The children of Foxford NS with their teachers Ms Gordon and art director  Bernadette Ruddy have created a beautiful art work of The Libertad which will be unveiled on the day. We also welcome an Argentinian singer Antonella and musicians to join us for the occasion. The Foxford Brass & Reed Band will lead us in the ceremonies. Local musicians and dancers from the Admiral Brown Comhaltas will also be in attendance.

The local Rural Social Scheme and Foxford Town Enhancement Scheme have been busy working painting, strimming and cleaning the town for the occasion. We thank them for the support and work that they do to improve our town and community.

We are delighted to welcome the support of Cllr Neil Cruise, O Haras bakery, The Moy Hotel, Mayo Education & Support Centre (The Art Blast Programme ) and the Moy Hotel, Foxford NS for their support

Please come along and join us for what promises to be a great occasion. We look forward to seeing everyone out in their blue and white colors and hopefully we will turn Foxford into a colourful welcome spectacle for the day.
