The following statement was issued by the Ard Chomhairle of Republican Sinn Féin after its meeting in January 2014:
“The January 2014 meeting of the Ard Chomhairle of Republican Sinn Féin took the decision to reorganise in Cork City and County following the temporary standing down of the MacCurtáin/MacSuibhne Cumann.
“Sinn Féin Poblachtach will be launching a recruitment campaign shortly and we ask that people who support our policies and the Republican view, make contact to help in this project.
“Cork is a city and county with a proud tradition of resistance to British rule in Ireland. It is a county that suffered greatly in the fight for freedom and an end to the occupation in the six north-eastern counties.
“That fight is still ongoing and will continue as long as there is British rule in any part of Ireland.
“For further details contact Sinn Féin Poblachtach, 223 Sráid Pharnell, BÁC 1, Éire. Phone: 00353-1-8729747; email: email@example.com
