    Default Easter Lilies Don't Belong in Stormont

    Tuesday's launching of a campaign encouraging people to wear an Easter Lily by Conor Murphy in the Provos' Stormont offices is an insult to Ireland's dead whom they claim to honour, a spokesperson for Republican Sinn Féin has said.

    “The Easter Lily (which the Provos have referred to as a 'Lilly' throughout) is the creation of the Cumann na mBan organisation, which always remained loyal to the ideals of true Republicanism.

    “Ireland's patriot dead did not give their lives for the resurrection of Stormont. Indeed, those who will claim to honour them in Stormont tomorrow are the very same people who have recently described their actions as treason against Ireland.”

    Their announcement of a drive to sell Easter Lilies comes on the same day that a councillor in Lurgan left the Provo party owing to their pro-British ideology.

    ENDS
    "I hereby declare that the Continuity Executive and the Continuity Army Council are the lawful Executive and Army Council respectively of the Irish Republican Army, and that the governmental authority, delegated in the Proclamation of 1938, now resides in the Continuity Army Council, and its lawful successors."

    Comdt. General Thomas Maguire

    They should cross a Lilly with a Poppy, and call the hybrid a Pilly, and let everyone wear it. The colour would be off pink I would imagine, so maybe Iris Robinson would have a problem with that.
