Promise of 1916 proclaimation is under threat – Mac Lochlainn

Commemorations have been held across the island to mark the 95th anniversary of the 1916 Easter Rising.

In Donegal, the main county commemeration this afternoon was at Drumboe. It was addressed by Deputy Padraig Mac Lochlainn, who said the period between now and the 100th anniversary in five years time should be marked with a new push towards unity.

He says at present, the vision of the patriots of 1916 is not being realised........
