Easter 2009

treimhse na Cásca beagnach thart don bhlian seo.

Bhí na mílte ar sráideanna Bothár na bhFáll De Domhnaigh agus bhí an aimsir galanta buíochas le Dia!

Bhí a lán ag titim amach le linn an paráid i mbliana agus is léir ón 'feedback' go raibh daoine iontach sástá leis.

The Easter period is coming to a close and what an Easter it was. Thousands lined the Falls road on Sunday afternoon and were clearly impressed by this year's Easter Parade. A massive comhgairdeas to everyone involved in running the Parade every single year, it continues to get bigger and better.

Gerry Adams gave the main oration at the Republican Plot in Milltown, you can read the full text of that speech here http://www.westbelfastsinnfein.com/news/12514

Yesterday I also made my way to the local commemoration in the New Lodge area of north Belfast.

Easter Sunday night saw Republicans in the Short Strand gather for a fundraising night for An Tine Bheo memorial project.

The do was packed to the doors and I have no doubt that the project was well supported, as it always is, by the local community. I was very honoured to chair the proceedings on Sunday night.

An Tine Bheo will continue to fund raise over the coming weeks and months in order to erect a fitting tribute to our local Patriot Dead. A particular word of thanks to the projects friends in Scotland who are always working to assist in this endeavour.
