A bench in memory of the late Corporal Fintan Heneghan will be unveiled in his native Ballinrobe on Friday March 15th ahead of the 30th anniversary of his death.

Corporal Fintan Heneghan died alongside Private Mannix Armstrong and Private Thomas Walsh on March 21, 1989 while serving with the 64th Infantry Battalion of the United Nations’ Interim Force in the Lebanon.

They were killed when a landmine detonated in the ‘Green Rooms’ area of Lebanon, on a track that was not frequently used by peacekeeping personnel there.

Local Fianna Fail Cllr Damien Ryan confirmed at this week’s Claremorris Municipal District meeting that the bench would be unveiled on Friday week at 2.30pm during the special ceremony in the town, which will be attended by the Defence Forces and various dignitaries.
