Tomorrow will see the 90th anniversary of the first Dail, established on the same day as the first shots were fired in the war of independence .
The commeration is to be held tomorrow, a day early. Sinn Fein however managed to book the Mansion house for Wednesday, and offered to share the date with the Republic’s government, provided it was an all Ireland event.
According to Gerry Adams:
We would ship out what ever the government needed provided it was truly a national event and that there were co-equal speaking rights and they said no.
