United  Commemoration

Trade Union leader delivers Wolfe Tone commemoration address

John Douglas, general secretary of Mandate

Described by seasoned observers as a significant development, John Douglas, general secretary of Irish retail trade union Mandate, delivered the keynote speech at a commemoration for Wolfe Tone on in Bodenstown, Co Kildare. Widely regarded as the first theoretician of republicanism in Ireland, Wolfe Tone (1763–1798) is somewhat unique in that almost all republicans and socialists in Ireland honour him.

The event was organised by the Peadar O’Donnell Socialist Republican Forum, under the slogan; unity of our people, unity of progressive forces, unity of our country. Consequently and for the first time in many years, communists, republicans and trade unionists came together to celebrate the life of the Irish patriot and democrat.
