On the streets with Dublin Ógra

Dublin Ógra Shinn Féin activists were on the streets of the city over the course of the week as part of a recruitment drive launched by the cúige. In streets and alleys, posters with the Ógra and Na Fianna Éireann logos were erected to mark the significant anniversary of Irish republican youth in struggle. Dublin Ógra were especially active in Moore Street, the location of the final HQ of the Provisional Government of the Irish Republic on Easter Week, 1916.

The latest activity of the recruitment drive, the flyposting was a sucess, and is one of many initiatives that will be taken over the course of the future. Every Saturday, Dublin Ógra Shinn Féin will be running an information stall outside the GPO, one of the most significant historic locations of revolutionary Dublin.

Dublin Ógra Shinn Féin spokeperson Daithí Byrne said; "This simple yet highly effective recruitment method is one of many ideas that will be employed by Dublin activists in the coming weeks. Our mission is simple, and that is to get the republican message out to the young people of Dublin and to continue to be strong players in the city's youth politics. Every Saturday we run a stall outside the GPO and we would encourage anyone who is interested in what we do and what we stand for to come along."
