    I created a Facebook event for this, if anyone from Dublin wouldn't mind inviting those they think might be interested.

    Are there any events planned that actually relate specifically to 1916?

    Yeah, we'll be hosting a commemoration on Easter Sunday and also will be promoting Republica Day on April 24th. Also we plan public debates on the 1916 Rising getting also unionist perspectives etc.

    Also, there are plans for 2016 that we will be supporting fully to have an alternative to the state events, free of the British royal family and hopefully supported by a sizeable portion of the Risings descendents' families.

    Letter printed in today's Irish News from the Seán Heuston 1916 Society, Dublin. It coincides with our public debate next week in Wynn's Hotel.

    A chara,

    Dominic McGlinchey raises a lot of valid points in his interview with the Irish News on January 24th. He asserts there needs to be conversations on the way forward for republicans. The 1916 Societies have been holding public meetings on the matter on both sides of the border in Armagh and Dublin. It has to be said both meetings were full to the brim and more are planned.

    It's not enough though, these need to be happening all over the country and people in the decision making process in the various groups need to come and engage with the public. These meetings have shown there is an appetite for discussion on the way forward. They've also shown that there are many republicans who see republicanism as a rudderless ship heading aimlessly into darkness; who can argue otherwise?

    Dominic is also correct in saying republicans have a duty to reflect, gather our thoughts and analyse our strategy. The danger is some act purely on a principle-based strategy and not one come to with carefully thought-out analysis - which could be argued is where the lack of engagement stems from as it's usually a strategy fraught with holes and very much open to scrutiny and many know it and are happy with going around aimlessly an ideological roundabout answering to nobody but themselves.

    We've acted as a conduit for these discussions and will continue to do so, if needed, but people can't be dragged kicking and screaming and there needs to be a degree of pragmatism needed to realise that there will always be a sect mentality in some sections of republicanism with attitudes that are self preservationist and vanguardist.

    We, as republicans, should remember the energy on the streets of Belfast last August. We came together for a common purpose as one to demand an end to internment and left our party politics at the door. Is there any reason why, through an extensive period of dialogue, we can't do the same on the core issue that defines us as republicans?

    There are many calling for change without offering an alternative or being apart of the process of offering an alternative and we'd urge them also to become apart of the possible implementation of a coming to a general consensus on the way forward. This struggle can only advance by active participation in the process and with the coming together of hearts and minds with those who hold the republican cause in its truly progressive nature.

    Regards,

    Chairperson, Seán Heuston 1916 Society, Dublin.

    Another educational event in Dublin this St. Patrick's weekend:

    The Men of the 40's - lecture and Q&A given by Dublin republican and historian, Noel Hughes.

    The lecture will be on a period largely ignored and to shine a light on De Valera's repressive reign against republicans, which included executions, men dying on hunger-strike, internment and non-jury military tribunals etc.

    It's on Saturday, March 15th @ 2pm in the Cobblestone bar, Smithfield in Dublin. It's free and open to all, with a trad session after it

    Hope to see some of you at the public meeting and debate tomorrow. All groups have been given invites and reminders so no excuses for them.
