Clonakilty Sinn Fein hold anti government protest

Cllr Cionnaith O Suilleabhain
On Monday evening last (23rd), the Clon Sinn Féin Cumann organised a march calling for an immediate general election. Around 30 people attended the event which was organised late the night before. It was organised to get participants thinking about patriots of times gone by, versus the corrupt and inept politicians in Government.
The peaceful march commenced at the statue of local 1798 leader, Tadhg an Astna, proceeded into McCurtain Hill (named after Tomás McCurtain, murdered Lord Mayor of Cork). Here they called for a general election at the office of Christy O’ Sullivan, TD, and proceeded up Pearse St., (named after Pádraig, the 1916 leader).
The march concluded at the Michael Collins statue where the Cathaoirleach and main organiser, Cllr. Cionnaith Ó Súilleabháin invited representatives from any political parties present to say a few words. Paul Hayes (Sinn Féin) was the only speaker.
The ceremony concluded with everyone singing, “Amhrán na bhFiann”.
