It was 100 years ago 1918 that the majority of the Irish people voted Sinn Fein in a British general election for a united and free Ireland from British Colonial rule
As result of this election the Sinn Fein Party / The Republican Party, refused to take their seats in the British parliament and moved to the Round Hall In The Mansion House Dawson Street Dublin and created the first Dail ( Parliament ) of Ireland
This situation was totally unacceptable to the British who ignored the democratic wishes of the people of Ireland which led to the war of Independence [ 1918 – 1921 ]
100 years later and after much suffering and loss of life within the Irish nationalist communities in our six counties which the British with force of arms and threats of murder/war partitioned our country in 1922, its once again Sinn Fein who are leading the way in our ongoing struggle for the return of our national sovereignty as they are once again the Biggest political party in Ireland, so what for 2018.
Will Brexit in a almost perverse way lead to a united free Ireland solidly embedded with the European family of nations, This should /must be in 2018 the most important challenge for our government both nationally and economically once again I say
ALTHOUGH IT IS 100 YEARS LATE OUR NATIONAL SOVEREIGNTY MUST BE RETURNED AND THE WISHES OF THE IRISH PEOPLE RESPECTED
