Edward Costello Memorial, Lurgan

The Thomas Harte Cumann are planning to build a monument in honour of Volunteer Edward Costello in North Lurgan.  He joined the Irish Citizen Army in 1915.

He took part in the Easter Rising in April 1916, and received a fatal bullet wound to the head on the 25th of April, dying later in Jarvis Street Hospital.  He was aged 27 years.  He was buried in Glasnevin Cemetery on the 1st May 1916.  His grave is in the St, Paul’s section, DC 30.  At present there is no headstone on his grave. We are currently running a lotto to raise funds the the monument anyone looking for tickets please contact the Thomas Harte Cumann facebook page for details by clicking the attached link:  Thomas Harte Cumann
