there was a large turnout for the annual Wolfe Tone Commemoration which was held in Bodenstown Cemetery at the grave side of Wolfe Tone on Sunday.

New Sinn Fein MEP Martina Anderson, who spoke at the event focused on the result from the recent referendum which she described as “more the fear of the people than the will of the people”.

Anderson told the large crowd gathered at the graveside of Wolfe Tone that Sinn Féin is working for the peaceful coming together of all the people in Ireland and that those who believe in Irish unity must reach out to unionists and engage them “in the all-important discussions around the nature and form of future structures on this island”.

The Derry native recently replaced Bairbe de Brún as MEP.
