Sinn Féin now circulating this election leaflet in North Belfast.
The most famous (albeit deceased ) resident of North Belfast is Henry Joy McCracken, hanged for his role as Leader of the 1798 Rebellion and now interred in Clifton Street Cemetry.
The United Irishmen had a philosophy of uniting Catholic, Protestant and Dissenter. The Republican Ideal. The Holy Grail of Nationalism.
Henry Joy…and indeed most of the Leaders of the 1798 Rebellion were Protestant.
Sinn Féin are betraying the Republican Ideal. Reducing Republicanism to dividing rather than uniting Irishmen and Irishwomen.
It is shameful.
