ABOUT THE ORGANIZER:
IFfF Global was formed last year to bring together people who wish to remember their history, and learn more about the brave souls from whom they descend, and to ensure 2017 does not pass by without the appropriate level of commemorations and remembrances. IFfF Global stands for the story of the Irish Fight for Freedom, as told from a Global perspective. Colonel Kelly gets a new military headstone courtesy of the U.S. Army
