Na Fianna Éireann Commemorates The 1916 Rising

On the 98th Anniversary of the 1916 Rising members of the Sean Healy Slua of the Fianna in Dublin remember those who gave their lives for the Irish Republic.

Slua members and colour party
On Easter Sunday members of the Fianna in Dublin were invited to march alongside members of a Dublin colour party of the Republican Movement to a monument in honour of Eamonn Ceannt in Eamonn Ceannt Park, Crumlin for a wreath laying ceremony. Afterwords they took part in another march to the Republican Plot in Deansgrange for Republican Sinn Fein Dublin's annual Deansgrange Commemoration.

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.

Fian Jamie Mullen delivering the oration
Looking around Dublin and Ireland today it is clear that the Ireland they sought to create has not come to pass. The All Ireland Republic of Easter week is not enthroned but instead we have a partitioned country where the British continue to rule in the 6 Counties and their collaborators of the Free State rule in the 26. Na Fianna Eireann remain dedicated to the Irish Republic and we will never accept anything short of an Ireland free from the centre to the sea. Our founding goal “to re-establish the independence of Ireland” has not yet been achieved but we will continue to prepare for the day when we will play our part in the struggle for the freedom of our nation and the re-establishment of the Irish Republic.'' - unquote.

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.
Slua members marching from Byrne's Corner 

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.

So Who Are Na Fianna Now Affiliated To?

Na Fianna have nothing got to do with the Provisional Movement, the Provisional Movement is now a reformist party that we no longer march for or associate ourselves with. We are a Revolutionary Youth Movement seeking to bring an end to British occupation, partition and to bring about a free and socialist Republic. We recognise the right of the Irish people to resist British occupation in arms by controlled and disciplined force to bring about the new Republic. 

The only political and militant groups we are behind(show solidarity to) today is Republican SF and the Continuity Army Council(CIRA).

Get behind Na Fianna Éireann, the future of your land!

The march was led by a lone piper and a Colour Party of the Republican Movement and also a member of Na Fianna Éireann took part.

The commemoration was chaired by Fergal Moore, Co- Vice-President of Republican Sinn Féin and an inspiring oration was delivered by Co-Vice-President, Cait Trainor.

Fergal O'Hanlon was a brave young man who fought and died for the Republic with his comrade-in-arm's, Seán South. We must be inspired by the gallant men of that generation and carry on their dream that still has not been fulfilled.

Republican Movement Commemorates Dáithí Ó Conaill

Andy Connolly & Peig King
Na Fianna member and Officer
On January 1, 2014 Members of the Dublin slua of Na Fianna marched behind a colour party to the grave of Dáithí Ó Conaill. The commemoration was well attended by members and supporters of the Republican Movement in Dublin.

The proceedings were chaired by Andy Connolly(Sinn Féin Poblachtach) and a decade of the rosary was recited as Gaeilge by Paddy Ennis and Séan Ó Sé played a lament as the flags were being dipped.

The main oration was delivered by Rsf Ard Chomhairle member Peig King. During her oration she mentioned how herself and Dáithí had met.

'We met through our local Sinn Féin Cumann, all members working together to help our fellow Irish men and Women in Ulster. During this period i was asked to assist the re-organisation of Cumann Na mBan and meetings between IRA and Cumann Na mBan led me to further contact with Dáithí Ó Conaill where I learned a lot about this courageous man. Dáithí was proud of Cumann Na mBan and the work they took on and did willingly.'

Colour Party and Na Fianna
There will be a full report on the commemoration in this month's SAOIRSE Newspaper.
