Embassy protest

To mark the 84th anniversary of the 1916 Rising, the Irish National Congress held a protest outside the British Embassy in Ballsbridge, Dublin, on Easter Monday. INC National Chairperson Marylou McDonald pointed out to the 50 plus people attending that this year, the anniversary, for the first time ever, had fallen on the exact date of the Rising itself. She handed in a letter of protest to the Embassy protesting Britain's suspension of the institutions under the Good Friday Agreement.
