IRA Easter Message 2008

On this the 92nd Anniversary of the 1916 Rising, the leadership of Óglaigh na hÉireann extends solidarity to the families of our patriot dead.

We remember, with pride, our comrades from every generation who have given their lives for the cause of Irish freedom and independence.

We extend solidarity to our imprisoned comrades and their families. This year marks a number of important anniversaries in the republican calendar.

We applaud those across the country who have organised in their local areas to commemorate these events.

When we gather to honour our patriot dead, we do so to celebrate their lives and to recommit ourselves to achieving our republican objectives.

We are proud of our patriot dead and we are proud of their families.

Our task and that of all Irish republicans is to shape the future through our commitment to achieving our goal of a united Ireland.

Since 28 July 2005 IRA Volunteers are playing a positive role in the new phase of our struggle. You have entered into this with energy and vigour. We commend this work and appeal to everyone to continue until we achieve our objectives.

The ideals and principles enshrined in the Proclamation of 1916 remain as relevant today as they ever were.We have proven that together, in unity and with comradeship, we can advance our struggle.

Let us rededicate ourselves to that goal.
