Adams calls for plans for Connolly's 90th anniversary

Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams MP on Sunday attended an event to commemorate the 89th anniversary of the death of 1916 Rising leader James Connolly and to mark May Day. Connolly used to live in a house at the corner of the Whiterock and Falls Roads in West Belfast.

Adams said there is an urgent need to restore political institutions in the Six Counties and to end the assault on frontline services by British Direct Rule Ministers. He also called on republicans and socialists in Belfast to begin planning events now to mark James Connolly's 90th anniversary next year.
