The vision of a United Ireland must not be limited to Gaelic football matches between teams from north and south, it was claimed today.

As Dublin and Tyrone clashed in n All-Ireland quarter final replay in Croke Park, Sinn Fein unveiled a building-sized banner in Parnell Street in Dublin to promote its unification campaign.

The Sinn Fein Mayor of Kerry, Toireasa Ferris, said the party wanted to see All Ireland structures developed in every single aspect of daily life in Ireland.

"While it is great to see GAA teams and supporters arriving in Dublin today from as far apart as Kerry and Tyrone for All Ireland matches over the weekend, we must ensure that this doesn`t remain the limit of our vision of Irish unity," she said.

Ms Ferris, who is the daughter of Sinn Fein TD Martin Ferris, was joined at the launch by Councillor Francie Molloy, the Mayor of Dungannon in County Tyrone.

Sinn Fein is planning a `Make Partition History carnival`, featuring street theatre, costumes, and live music on September 24 in Parnell Square.
