Castlegregory Commemoration revived
The Roll of Honour for the volunteers from An Daingean, Castlegregory, Derrymore and Tralee, was read by past local election candidate for Corca Dhuibhne, Theresa Rafter Moriarty.
Sinn Féin TD for North Kerry, Martin Ferris, spoke of the current economic crisis, referring to banking, golden handshakes, youth unemployment and the decimation of rural communities through the withdrawal of vital services and cutbacks. He pointed out that the future of Ireland depended on a fundamental shift of power in Irish politics, away from the hands of those who have taken us to this economic crisis and into the hands of those who represent the ordinary people.
It is hoped that this commemoration will become an annual event and South Kerry Sinn Féin extend their gratitude and appreciation to all those who took part.
