Ógra Shinn Féin erected a number of murals in Carrickmore, County Tyrone last night (22 March) ahead of the main Easter Sunday County Commemoration taking place in the republican heartland.
The two murals erected on Quinn's Corner are one urging people to 'wear an Easter lily' in remembrance of Ireland's patriot dead and the other one is highlighting the strong solidarity links between the Basque and Irish Youth.
The murals are the first of many to be erected across Tyrone in the coming week.
Encouraging people to remember Ireland's patriot dead this Easter, Ógra spokesperson Kerry McColgan said,
"It is right and fitting that we remember the lasting legacy of the Leaders, men and women of Easter week, and to honour the sacrifice of all of those who have gave their lives for Irish freedom. To this end, we would encourage everyone to wear an Easter Lily and attend the many Easter Commemorations taking place throughout Tyrone, particularly the main County Commemoration in Carrickmore on Easter Sunday."
"Ógra Shinn Féin and the republican youth of Tyrone are ever mindful that without the huge sacrifices of our patriot dead, we would not be so far progressed on the road to freedom, and the least we can do is continue to keep their memory alive at Easter and ensure we lift the resolve and determination of another generation to achieve what they died for."
