Seamus Costello wreath-laying ceremony, North Strand, October 5, 2013

Interesting to see that the chairperson was Ursula Ní Shionnáin, a prominent member of éirígí and the main speaker was Sean Doyle, a comrade of Costello’s who is now a member of Clann éirígí.  The full-on embrace of Costello by éirígí over the past couple of years has been a very encouraging development, indicative of the fact that éirígí has no interest in building a Provos Mark 2 politically but, rather, is focused on building a hard-core socialist-republican movement.  Also, good to see that the main commemoration in Newtownmountkennedy featured both éirígí and IRSP speakers.
