Annual Edentubber Martyrs Commemoration

On Monday 11th November 1957, five republicans were killed in an explosion which demolished a small cottage at the foot of Edentubber Mountain in County Louth.

The five were; Volunteers George Keegan, Paul Smith, Oliver Craven, Paddy Parle and republican Michael Watters. 

The men became known as the Edentubber Martyrs. 

At their funeral in St Patrick’s Cemetery, John Joe McGirl, Sinn Féin TD for Sligo/Leitrim, delivered the graveside oration stating:

„The tragedy which brought to a sudden end the lives of five great Irishmen is a tragedy of the Irish nation, the tragedy of an Ireland that is unfree and divided. These men came from the North and the South to join together to end the tragedy of our nation and our people.”

This year’s commemoration takes place on Sunday 14th November at 2.30pm. The keynote speaker will be Pádraig Mac Lochlainn TD.

Republican Resistance Calendar 2022

The 2022 Republican Resistance Calendar marks the 50th anniversary of Bloody Sunday in Derry and the Centenary of the Irish Civil War. In the tragic year 1922 the British government’s Partition of Ireland was consolidated with the formal establishment of the 'Free State’ in the 26 Counties and 'Northern Ireland’ in the Six Counties.

Republicans opposed this outworking of the Treaty signed in London the previous December which sharply divided the Dáil and the IRA. British pressure on the Free State led to the attack on the IRA in the Four Courts and the outbreak of the Civil War.

Fifty years later in 1972 the price of the disaster of Partition was paid on the streets of Derry as the occupying British Army murdered Irish civilians at a Civil Rights demonstration against internment without trial.
