Hi!

EASTER IN THE 6, THE 26, AND NEW YORK, FOR 2017.

On Easter Sunday in Dublin, a wreath will be laid and the 1916 Proclamation will be read at the Éamonn Ceannt monument in the public park named in his honour in Crumlin (Dublin) at 12 noon and a commemoration will be held in Deansgrange Cemetery (which was established in 1861 and had its first burial in 1865) that same day at the republican plot, at 1pm. A full list of all RSF Easter Commemorations can be viewed at the 'Related Link' , below.

Also, 300 'leaflet packs', comprised of, in total, 1,200 printed items of an Irish republican nature, will be distributed free of charge in Dublin city centre on Easter Monday (before, during and after the commemoration mentioned in the first post on this thread) in the vicinity of the GPO in O'Connell Street, on a 'first up best dressed' basis.
Hope to see some of ye at one (or more!) of the Dublin commemorations!

Thanks for reading,
Sharon.

Hi!

This Easter Commemoration in Dublin, at the GPO in O'Connell Street, was a noted success with about 300 people staying with us for the hour-and-a-half that we were there, albeit they gathered in three different places (due to the Luas-related barricades and building work) : a good crowd stood their ground around the six columns at the GPO, some joined us on the traffic isle and more lined the footpath on the other side of O'Connell Street.
The commemoration was chaired by one of the RSF Treasurers, Anthony Donohue, the main speaker was Líta Ní Chathmhaoil and, between them, Róisín Hayden and Pádraig Ennis read the Easter Statement and the 1916 Proclamation.
RSF President Des Dalton gave a rousing speech from the stage in which he referenced the hypocrisy of State representatives seeking to 'honour' the men and women of 1916, as those same Free Staters can trace their political lineage back to those that fought against the 1916 fighters, and he was loudly applauded by the crowds present for making that comparison, and rightly so.

All of the 300 leaflet packs were distributed and, indeed, had we got half-as-much again we would have handed those out as well, such was the demand. We have published a few words and pics at the 'Related Link', below, and a more detailed report will be published in the May 2017 issue of 'Saoirse' , which goes to print on Wednesday, 10th May next.
Thanks for reading,
Sharon.
