Gardai fear trouble as Sinn Fein and dissidents plan Dublin rallies

Gardai are gearing up for potential trouble in Dublin city centre next weekend as Sinn Fein and dissident republicans plan to mark the actual anniversary of the 1916 Rising with rallies.

Gerry Adams has called on his supporters to attend a "huge march" through the city next Sunday to coincide with the party's ard fheis in the National Convention Centre on the Liffey Quays.

Gardai are concerned about breakaway republican groups who have caused trouble in the past and tried to disrupt the Queen's visit in May 2011.

But one major source of concern is a possible counter-demonstration by loyalists, and particularly those associated with the 'Love Ulster' group, whose plans to hold a rally in Dublin city centre sparked the riots of February 2006. Loyalist sources have told the Sunday Independent this is a "possibility".

Adams has so far made no public mention in the Republic of his plans for a "huge" march in Dublin. He made reference to the planned demonstration after he boycotted the official State commemoration on Easter Sunday and chose instead to mark the occasion at the Provisional IRA plot in Belfast's Milltown Cemetery.

The Sinn Fein leader announced the demonstration in his weekly column in the west Belfast-based weekly newspaper Andersonstown News, writing: "On April 22 and 23 in Dublin, Sinn Fein will hold our ard fheis. On Sunday, April 24 - the actual day of the Rising one hundred years ago - there will be a huge march in Dublin to celebrate that event.

"Our task as Irish citizens must be that when the centenary has come and gone, there is more left behind than a memory of a good day out".

Sounds like a recipe for a riot. Sorry, 'good day out'.

Doubt it, unless there is a major antagonising factor

- Orange March, a Sectarian Love March through Dublin
- Queen turning up at the March for a fight
- FF & FG decide to mess with the monuments to the rising

Sounds charming.

But it is the Sindo.

I expect some mouth breathers to make a show of themselves near the GPO that weekend.

Some of the Disso's might be too coked up to read the proclamation or hold a fleg.

Loyalists would not dare turn up. Face it, they could be baton charged back to Newry and the 17th century and not even this west brit would care.
