Easter Lilies Don't Belong in Stormont

Tuesday's launching of a campaign encouraging people to wear an Easter Lily by Conor Murphy in the Provos' Stormont offices is an insult to Ireland's dead whom they claim to honour, a spokesperson for Republican Sinn Féin has said.

“The Easter Lily (which the Provos have referred to as a 'Lilly' throughout) is the creation of the Cumann na mBan organisation, which always remained loyal to the ideals of true Republicanism.

“Ireland's patriot dead did not give their lives for the resurrection of Stormont. Indeed, those who will claim to honour them in Stormont tomorrow are the very same people who have recently described their actions as treason against Ireland.”

Their announcement of a drive to sell Easter Lilies comes on the same day that a councillor in Lurgan left the Provo party owing to their pro-British ideology.

They should cross a Lilly with a Poppy, and call the hybrid a Pilly, and let everyone wear it. The colour would be off pink I would imagine, so maybe Iris Robinson would have a problem with that.

Why not call it a Polly flower?

I didn't know they were plant breeders, any other forms bred by them other than
Zantedeschia aethiopica (calla lily/arum lily)

The Easter Lily is also banned in Northern Irish prisons.

"A republican prisoner has lost his European Court challenge over the right to wear an Easter lily in memory of the 1916 Irish Rising".
