On Easter Monday members of the Sean Healy Slua of Na Fianna Dublin held a wreath laying ceremony of their own for Sean Healy who was shot dead at Byrne's Corner, Phibsborough while delivering dispatches through the city during Easter Week. Sean was the youngest martyr of the rising.
During the ceremony Fian Jamie Mullen delivered an excellent and inspiring oration and during that oration he mentioned and i quote - ''In all 5 Fianna boys were to be killed during the Rising and Sean Heuston and Con Colbert were later executed for their part.

When the ceremony ended the slua then marched to the garden of remembrance to take part in the march to the GPO for Republican Sinn Fein's National Easter Commemoration.
Ireland's dead were well remembered this Easter and also were their aim's and objectives.

The war on occupation and oppression is now mental more than physical and it is continuing to increase due to the centenary commemoration of the 1916 Rising which is just around the corner. Our enemies and their lackeys are working hard on fragmenting and planting seeds of doubt in the minds of those who remain uncompromising and constant while tarnishing us, taking ownership of and rewriting the history of our country.
We must not let them distract and divide us once again especially over these next few years, we must work hard and keep the aims and objectives of the patriots of '16 alive and not let our enemies and their lackeys take ownership of what is really ours and the people of Ireland's.
