R.I.P. Peig King


Delivering the main oration at the Wolfe Tone commemoration in 2014.

Republicans are deeply saddened today to learn of the passing of lifelong Republican Péig King of Tyrone and Dublin.  In recent times Peig held position as Patron of Sinn Féin Poblachtach. She will be greatly missed by all her friends and comrades in the Republican Movement having worked in many positions for almost 9 decades. 

A true Republican, unbroken continuity.

We extend our deepest sympathies and condolences to the King family. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a h-anam.

“Men and women of all ages, I call on you to join Republican Sinn Féin now. Your country needs you to finish what our brave men and women have fought and died for. Don’t forsake them.” – Peig King, 2014
