Young Republicans urged to mobilise for Ógra Shinn Féin National Congress

7 January, 2008

Ógra activists, Sinn Féin members and republican youth are being asked to mobilise for the upcoming Ógra Shinn Féin National Congress on the 18 - 20 January.

The National Congress which is Ógra's largest and most important event of the year, will be taking place in Dublin's ATGWU Hall which is located on Middle Abbey Street.

Urging maximum attendance, National Organiser of Ógra Shinn Féin, Barry McColgan said,

"Ógra activists, Sinn Féin members and republican youth should be prioritising attendance at this year's National Congress. Each Ógra cumann and activist has an onus on them to ensure maximum attendance. It will be an opportunity for us to discuss a difficult yet successful year, it will allow us to debate many relevant and progressive issues and will assist us in forging an activist based work plan for the year ahead."

"The congress will include a leadership address from Gerry Adams, workshops and debate on pressing issues, protests, night of revolutionary music, attendance of international guests, and the launch of a new film and campaign. It is a packed clár of events, and will undoubtedly be an education, and confidence builder for anyone who attends."

"I look forward to seeing everyone at the National Congress in January, what better way to start the new year than with a successful republican youth event where activists will be able to meet and build camradrie with other young republicans and international comrades. Mobilise now and play a part in its success!"
