Make partition history

The much vaunted “Make partiton history” rally happened in Dublin yesterday. The event was supposedly the centrepiece of Sinn Fein`s Cead Bliain centenary celebrations. Some interesting comment on regarding the parade in the wake of scathing comments by Labour`s Pat Rabbite, accusing Sinn Fein and this rally in particular, of promoting inter-communal hostility in the North.
Republican Sinn Fein were also to hold an alternative rally at the GPO.
