New Ireland prepares to farewell Sir Michael

Governor of New Ireland Sir Julius Chan and the people of New Ireland Province will farewell Grand Chief Sir Michael Somare – the New Ireland Way on Tuesday April 18, 2017 in Kavieng.

Sir J said, it is only fitting that we give Sir Michael this farewell after more than 40 years in politics especially recognising and appreciating his contributions to the province and people of New Ireland.

Everyone in New Ireland is welcomed to attend this event which will start at 10am with a motorcade from the airport to the Catholic Mission field.

There will be singsing, dance and passim custom for the Grand Chief and his wife Lady Veronica.
