Kearney to address Gulladuff commemoration

Sinn Féin National Chairperson, Declan Kearney will be the guest speaker at this weekend’s annual Counties Derry and Antrim Republican Commemoration in Gulladuff.
Speaking in advance of the major republican mobilisation, Magherafelt Sinn Féin Councillor Peter Bateson called on all republicans to support the event which will take place in Gulladuff on Sunday 30 August at 6pm.
Cllr. Bateson said:
“I encourage all republicans to come out on Sunday 30 August to commemorate and celebrate the lives of all of those from the Counties of Derry and Antrim who gave their lives in the struggle for Irish freedom, equality and social justice.
“This is a very important date in our local republican calendar and it gives republicans the opportunity to rededicate themselves to the ideals and aspirations for which our patriot dead paid the supreme sacrifice.
“Political activism is the key to building the strength required to make change and drive the agenda for Irish unity and sovereignty. Sunday 30 August will give you the opportunity to demonstrate your support for the change that we are striving to achieve. While extending a warm welcome to all nationally minded people, the event’s organisers are particularly welcoming the families of our patriot dead, republican ex-prisoners of war and their families as well as young people.”
The commemorative parade will assemble at the carpark opposite St. Mary’s Church, Mayogall at 6pm sharp before making its way to the ceremony at the Garden of Remembrance at Gulladuff. The parade will be led by South Derry Martyrs Flute Band.
