Henry Joy McCracken commemoration

While it’s great that there’s a Henry Joy McCracken commemoration, and I wish the organisers well with this event, what I fail to understand is why individual socialist-republican groups organise commemorations of people who belong to all of us.  Why not a combined committee of representatives from the different groups, and independent left-republicans, to organise an event like this, with support and speakers from all the groups?  How many of these separate commemorations do we need?  How many will be enough?

  1. Phil you are right it is better to have one event with all groups than 2 or 3 small commemorations being held.The committee for the Peter Daly commemoration in Co.Wexford brought together different groups at last years commemoration CPI, EirigiI, WP, SF. I R S P and independent left-republicans.

  2. WP and SF. . . That must have been interesting.
