Gerry Adams in Dublin on Wednesday to launch Easter Lily campaign
Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams MP will be in Dublin tomorrow (Wednesday 8th) to launch the annual Easter Lily campaign. Mr. Adams will be accompanied by Aengus Ó Snodaigh TD, Caitríona Ruane MLA and Sorcha Nic Chormaic from Dublin South. The event is being launched on International Womens Day to honour the women of Cumann na mBan who first introduced the lily and to celebrate the activism of women who are involved in political activity in communities across Ireland.
Mr. Adams will use the launch as a platform to call on women to join Sinn Fein in greater numbers and to work with the party to deliver justice and equality on a local, regional and national level as well as advancing the cause of Irish reunification.
Mr. Adams will also set out the party's position in advance of the planned talks between the Taoiseach Bertie Ahern and the British Prime Minister Tony Blair in London tomorrow.
There will be a photo-op at the gates of St. Stephens Green (Grafton Street) at 11.30am on Wednesday 8th.
Dublin Sinn Féin will be leafletting DART stations across the city tomorrow morning as part of a countrywide recruitment campaign for women to join the party.
