Annual Eve Of All-Ireland Rally.

On Saturday , September 20 , 2008 , Republicans will hold a Rally in Dublin in support of republican prisoners .
Annual Eve Of All-Ireland Rally , Dublin , Sat 20 Sept 2008.
Annual Eve Of All-Ireland Rally , Dublin , Sat 20 Sept 2008.

Hi !

" One of the largest public rallies seen in Dublin for years was held by Sinn Féin at the GPO on the eve of the All-Ireland Football Final . Headed by a Colour Party and a pipe band , a parade of more than 2,000 people marched from Parnell Square through the main city thoroughfare as a protest against the continued unjust imprisonment of Irishmen without charge or trial .
Contingents from all over the country took part and many carried banners and placards including groups from England and Scotland . In the Ulster section was a strong representation of the Derry supporters who thronged the capital city for the Final . One placard they carried asked -
' Why are Six-County Nationalists interned in the Curragh?' ....."
(From 'An tÉireannach Aontaithe/The United Irishman newspaper , November 1958)

The Annual Eve Of All-Ireland Rally will be held this year on Saturday 20th September : those attending are asked to assemble at the Garden of Remembrance in Parnell Square at 1.45pm from where the parade will leave for the GPO .

Thanks!

Sharon.

best of luck on this, i am unable to attend but hopefully a good few reading this who are able will do the right thing and stop by and show their support for political prisoners in both the 6 and 26. Thanks RSF for helping make their plight more known.

How many convicted IRA killers were set free long before their prison term was up? Have you no shame in getting trying to get more freed?

Hi Mishta!
Nice to know that you'll be there in spirit with us - I hope to have a brief report and a few photographs of the rally on this thread tomorrow night , with links to more of same .
Thanks again!

Hi Paddy !
I think you're missing the main reason why this Rally is held , and has been held for over 50 years : to highlight the reality that Ireland is a 32-County nation, which is partitioned and occupied by Britain. The essential unity of the Irish nation is symbolised in the All-Ireland football and hurling finals each year.
The sooner the better that events like this are no longer required but , until then , republicans will continue to try and keep the issue 'on the front page'.
Thanks!

Sharon.

Yet another well run and very well organised rally,

The sun on our backs Marching down O'Connell street (although i heard one of the lads complaining about the bus nearly hitting us at one stage) it felt proud to march down our city centre's main street.

With a strong crowd already being held by our warm-up speaker at the G.P.O. it was a great sight to see so many young people gathered to listen to the speakers.

Even the non-welcome presence of special branch didnt even dampen the spirits of RSF members or supporters.

We will be carrying a report on our website also,

Hi Peter!

The event went well - great to see the National Flag being carried , held and displayed through our capital city in a republican demonstration .
I was one of those tasked with leafleting the crowds - hundreds of leaflets were distributed - and dozens of copies of 'Saoirse' were sold at the Rally .
It was a well organised and worthwhile exercise.

Thanks!

Sharon.
