Mayo Republican Dan Hoban delivering the main oration at Bodenstown , 15 June 2008.

RSF Wreath laid in Bodenstown Graveyard yesterday , Sunday 15 June 2008.

As promised yesterday in our post ,today we publish a few more photographs from the Republican Sinn Féin-organised Wolfe Tone Commemoration which was held yesterday in Sallins , County Kildare: out thanks to our colleagues in Cork for helping us with the collection of these pictures . Incidentally , our Cork friends have asked us to mention that when they alighted in Heuston Station in Dublin from the Cork train at around lunch-time they were almost immediately surrounded by a group of Special Branch operatives , who proceeded to question and harass them . When the Dublin bus arrived , as arranged , to collect the Corkonians these Branch men , ignoring their friends in the two-car convoy that was accompanying said bus , entered the vehicle and proceeded to attempt to intimidate the driver and passengers . However , after a few minutes they realised that their intimidatory tactic was having no effect on those present and , copping-on to the fact that the sooner they leave the city limits the sooner they could claim 'country expenses' , they piled back into their own vehicle and joined the mini-convoy to Kildare! So , readers - beware when driving past busy train stations . The pollution level is high.....
