31 August, 2005


Sinn Féin MEP Mary Lou McDonald has called on people throughout Ireland to mobilise for the Rally for Irish unity which will take place in Dublin at the end of September. Ms. McDonald was speaking as the party announced that a giant banner publicising the event, currently located on Parnell Square in Dublin, has been put up for auction on Ebay with all proceeds going to the campaign for Irish unity. A link to the auction can be found at www.sinnfeinbookshop.com.

Ms McDonald said:

"On Saturday 24th September a Rally for Irish unity will take place in Dublin and I am calling on people throughout Ireland to mobilise for the event. Following the end of the IRA's armed campaign a golden opportunity has been created for us to build on the increasing momentum for Irish unity and to rally the Irish people behind the slogan, Make Partition History.

"As part of our promotion of the rally, a giant banner has been erected on Parnell Square in Dublin. This unique banner has been put up for auction on Ebay and all money raised will go directly to the campaign for Irish Unity." ENDS
