Howth, County Dublin.

Despite the ring of steel put in place by the Free State and British Security Services, Members and supporters of Anti Imperialist Action Ireland and the Anti Internment Group of Ireland slipped inside the cordon to stage a direct action against the English Royal Visit in Howth.

Beneath the Tricolor a large banner was dropped from Howth Abbey that read, ‘No Royal Visits- Our Mandate Our Republic!

Britain has no right to be in Ireland and its Royal Parasites are not welcome here.


More as we get it.

So subtly rendered.

You’d never have guessed.

This morning.

Twitter has launched a General Election 2020 election emoji which  will be ‘triggered’ by the  hashtag #GE2020 and by the Irish language election hashtag; #Togh2020.

Twitter’s Ronan Costello says:

‘’The emoji is specific to the Irish electorate in design and, like many of the products we launch, is guided by how people are already using Twitter – the hashtags that activate it have been adopted by the community and are trending each day of the campaign.

‘’We want to help people to have healthy, open, and safe civic discussion on Twitter. make it easy for those on the service to engage with and follow the national conversation”.
