On May 6, 1959, a 1916 Commemoration ceremony was held at Arbor Hill. It was attended by the President and the Taosieach, as well as 500 troops of the 2nd Brigade. After the Mass a procession moved to the Memorial at the back of the church where the Benedictus was chanted by the clergy, the Last Post sounded and De Profundis was recited, after which the Tricolour was flown at full mast.
