After noting the small attendance at a vigil in Newry opposing those that bombed the city’s courthouse, I will also mention the largeish attendance at an Ógra Shinn Fein commemoration for IRA volunteers – Charles Breslin, Michael and David Devine.
This commemoration was part of an ÓSF Republican Youth weekend:
Sinn Fein Councillors Kieran McGuire, Ruairi McHugh and Brian McMahon, alongside ex IRA POW Paul McGarvey gave the youths an in-depth insight of how each volunteer on the West Tyrone Roll of Honour was killed and succeeded in educating the youths of the courageous exploits of the Volunteers and the sacrifices they had made in their fight for Irish freedom
The Deputy First Minister also contributed:
The main speaker Martin McGuinness gave his account of his memory of the deaths of the volunteers and spoke of their selfless heroism.
