Letters to the Editor: ‘Easter is a time of commemoration’

Letters to the Editor, by Eirigi
For Irish republicans everywhere Easter is a time of commemoration, when those who have died in the struggle for Irish freedom are remembered. It is also a time of reflection when republicans take stock of the contemporary struggle for the creation of an Irish Republic. And finally it is a time of re-commitment, when republicans dedicate themselves to another year in pursuit of the ideals for which so many have died over the centuries.
This Easter marks the 96th anniversary of the 1916 Easter Rising when hundreds of Irish women and men joined an armed uprising against British rule. In villages, towns and cities across Ireland this anniversary will be marked by hundreds of commemorative events. With wreath laying ceremonies, parades, speeches and song thousands of republicans will come together to remember those who gave their lives that Ireland might be free. This Easter éirígí is organising a number of wreath laying ceremonies in Newry, starting at 1pm, Easter Saturday, April 7th, at the Egyptian Arch.
Join with us and remember Ireland’s martyrs with pride.
Eirigi.
