Mary Lou McDonald TD attends Annual Remembrance Day Service

12 November, 2017 - by Mary Lou McDonald TD


Sinn Féin Deputy Leader Mary Lou McDonald TD today attended the Annual Remembrance Sunday Service of Remembrance in St Patrick’s Cathedral, Dublin.

Speaking about the event Teacha McDonald said;

“I am very happy to attend today's ceremony in Dublin.

“The loss of a generation in the first world war impacted on families across Ireland.  It is right that we remember them. The dead of World War One are part of our shared, and at times contested, history.

“Last year I was proud to visit the Somme with Martin McGuinness and Sinn Féin party chairperson Declan Kearney for a wreath laying ceremony and to see at first hand the scale of the loss.

“I believe that while we may differ on our view of the past, we can all agree on respect for the dead and respect for other traditions

“A history of division must not stand in the way of finding a reconciled future.”
