World Day of Remembrance for
Road Traffic Victims
The World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims (WDR) is commemorated on the third Sunday of November each year. On this day we come together to remember the many millions killed and injured on the world’s roads, their bereaved families and many others also affected including members of the emergency services. IRVA holds a special ceremony in Mullingar on the 3rd Sunday of November every year.
Every year, people from all across Ireland gather together in the Bloomfield House Mullingar to remember our lost loved ones, the injured and also the hard work of the emergency services. Following the ceremony we hold our IRVA Global "Light of Hope" award ceremony.
In 2012 and 2013 our event was held in the Belvedere House and Gardens Mullingar where we have a Garden of Remembrance for road traffic victims.
