Republican Sinn Féin salutes GAA counties boycott of British Queen

Statement by President of Republican Sinn Féin Des Dalton

Republican Sinn Féin salutes the decision of eight of the nine counties of Ulster not to attend the visit of the Queen of England to Croke Park on May 18. By their actions they have salvaged the honour of the GAA and have spoken for GAA members throughout Ireland who opposed this hijacking of the GAA in order to normalise British Rule in Ireland.

The GAA and Páirc an Chrócaigh where the All-Ireland Football and Hurling Finals are staged each year embody the essential unity of the Irish Nation. Bringing the head of the British State - whose occupation of six of the nine counties of Ulster is a denial of the Irish Nation’s essential right to unity and freedom - to Croke Park contradicts the principles upon which the GAA was founded.

"We of Republican Sinn Féin are the nucleus, which represents what Emmet represented,
the soul of Ireland,the prophetic shock minority, those who are neither purchased nor intimidated."
