This year’s Easter commemoration will take place at Johnston’s Bridge, Bornacoola at 2.30pm Easter Sunday. The main oration will be given by Sinn Féin’s Finance spokesperson Pearse Doherty TD where he will pay tribute to the men and women of 1916 and to those volunteers who carried on the fight for Irish freedom like Jimmy Joe Reynolds and his comrades.
Deputy Doherty is expected to comment on the ongoing banking inquiry and outline Sinn Féin’s plans as we approach the general election.
A Sinn Fein spokesperson said, “It is fitting that we have Pearse Doherty from Donegal as we gather at the grave of IRA Volunteer Jimmy Joe Reynolds who was killed by a premature explosion in Donegal in 1938.”
Refreshments afterwards in Fox’s pub Tooman.
