Republican family meeting appeal


Andersonstown Sinn Féin is asking local republicans to attend a family meeting in Andersonstown Social Club on Thursday 19 January at 7.30pm.
Sinn Féin councillors for the area, Paul Maskey and Chrissie Mhic Giolla Mhín, are appealing to the broad Republican family and support base to come along to the meeting.
“We are looking for attendance from currently active republicans, the large group of people who have assisted the party in election campaigns over the years, the local ex-prisoner community, community activists, local campaigning groups and indeed anybody interested in advancing the Andersonstown community politically and socially at all levels,” said Councillor Maskey.
Newly elected councillor, Chrissie Mhic Giolla Mhín, added: “We want to include as wide a range of people as possible to play their part in helping develop local structures of the party.
“We know and are grateful for the commitment shown by the Andersonstown community over the years, which have greatly contributed to the advancement of the Republican struggle,” said Chrissie.
“People have given so much and in this significant year, the 25th anniversary of the Hunger Strikes, we are arranging so many commemorative events throughout the city.
“We are asking people to play their part. People who have been active, people who want to become involved and indeed any young people who may be interested are all welcome.
“As Bobby Sands once said, ‘no part is too small or too big’.” The meeting will be held at Andersonstown Social Club on Thursday 19 Jan at 7.30pm.
