Launch of commemorative book to mark the 100th Anniversary of Na Fianna Éireann

17 August, 2009


Sinn Féin Mayor of Derry Councillor Paul Fleming has joined members of Ógra Shinn Féin at the launch of a commemorative book to mark the 100th Anniversary of Na Fianna Éireann in the Guildhall.

Speaking at the launch Derry Ógra activist Adrian Óg Kelly said,

“This year marks the 100th Anniversary of Na Fianna Éireann, and it is right and fitting that ‘Na Fianna Martyrs’ cumann Doire, would commemorate the first republican youth organisation with this new book.

“Na Fianna has a strong history in Derry, and played a huge role in recruiting, training and educating many generations of young republicans across the city. It provided a platform where young republicans could become involved in the struggle, developing their politics and activism. Ógra Shinn Féin provides that same platform today." ENDS
