Re: Re: O’ Connell Street, Dublin
Great photos Graham as usual. I was delighted when the FF government reintroduced this annual ceremony for the 90th anniversary of the 1916 Rising in 2006.
It coincided with the much needed makeover of O’Connell St, although the street was not finished at the time for the occasion….typical!
Unfortunately, such a ceremony means nothing today….our Republic means nothing now when we have the IMF and the EU running the show. Our country sold out by FF.
The guard of honour looked well. but the military brass present, particularly the head of our non existant ‘air force’ is farsical. (The sight of our troops giving a gun salute wearing big ear mufflers is comical).
The plastic containers of lillies sums up our so called ‘republic’ beautifully … kinda cheap and shallow!
