Sinn Féin MLA Daithi McKay is encouraging people to honour Ireland’s patriot dead this Easter by wearing an Easter Lily.
Speaking at the North Antrim launch in Dunloy Mr McKay said:
“Easter is a very special time for Irish Republicans. It is a time not only when we commemorate the heroic acts that took place in Dublin in 1916 but it is also a time when we remember all the brave men and woman who have made the ultimate sacrifice in their pursuit of creating a better Ireland.
“Wearing an Easter Lily is an outward display of remembrance for their sacrifice made on our behalf, and I would encourage as many people to wear a Lily this Easter.”
