    Good except I am disappointed that:

    A: No plans for gun-salute unlike 1966.

    B: No plans for speeches. These could have been used to disassociate 1916 from the Provos and claim the legacy of 1916 for the State and the Irish Army.

    Will you turn up for it shane?

    I wonder will the branch be out harrasing the parade goers at this free state event. Like the scum do, at Republican commemorations.
    The day will dawn when all the people of Ireland will have the desire for freedom to show.
    It is then we'll see the rising of the moon.

    Obviously you havent experienced a moment with the nice guys of the special detective unit. Who even had time to harass myself while walking along the road with a two year old kid.

    How is it people not aligned with terrorist groups never seem to have experienced a moment with special detective unit?

    In fairness the "free state" bash is likely to be a tad more upmarket that your fringe republican effort. Why it might even get the blessing of a cardinal.

    Im not aligned to any 'terrorist' group. I am a Republican activist.
