Imperialists using a fund raiser for a playground as a front for a British army recruiting drive have been exposed by the ISR...

ARMED gardaí were called to defuse a heated situation at a playground fundraiser in County Limerick where a dozen Republicans staged a protest against a British Legion band concert.


The British Legion Leiston Band, hailing from the small town of Leiston in East Suffolk, was invited to perform a brass concert, which was to take a moment to remember the Knocklong men killed in the First World War, with proceeds going towards a playground for the local Heritage Park.

‘British Imperialists not welcome in Knocklong’.

The spokesperson told the Limerick Leader that “despite the ring of steel around Knocklong Community Centre”, the Republicans “successfully prevented the pro-imperialist event” from taking place.

A spokesperson for the Knocklong History Group said that it was “very disappointed that it was not possible for the concert to proceed. We would like to thank the band from Leiston for all their work preparing for the concert and traveling to Knocklong to perform. We wish them every good wish and hope that one day they will be able to play in Knocklong.”

Protester and Knocklong native, George McAnaspie said that the protest was a “massive victory for Socialist
“Left unchecked, events like the concert in Knocklong could become subtle recruiting grounds for the Brit Army in Ireland and therefore must be opposed.”

He added: “Let the message go out loud and clear from Knocklong, Brit Imperialists are not welcome in Ireland and will be challenged.”

In Longford we had a new memorial garden and plaque for citizens who took part in 1916, for the hundredth anniversary. A few months later a plaque twice the size was put up to commemorate The Battle of the Somme adjacent to the first. Despite there being a ruddy great War Memorial in the town already.
Creeping British Imperialism. I salute the citizens of Limerick for taking a stand.

On July 30, a group called Anti-Imperialist Action Ireland posted on Facebook about the concert.

“Normalisation must be opposed. Imperialism in Ireland must be confronted. Brit Military recruitment in Ireland must be Challenged.

“Therefore the concert in Knocklong must be opposed by Socialist Republicans and all those opposed to the illegal British presence in Ireland and in nations all over the world. Join us at 6pm this Tuesday at Knocklong Community Centre and let's take a stand for our youth, for our class and for our country against Imperialism!”

They left out the bit of where they're going to fund raise equal money for the playground. Where's that bit? Because the only material difference they've made is to deny funding to children.

Going by his surname, George McAnaspie is clearly the son of a bishop.

Kafflicks don't do that kind of thing.

Knocknagoshel, rise and take your place among the nations of the world!

A bunch of stupid killjoys ruined people's enjoyment of some music.

Monumental victory for the Socialist left? More like a f*cking pogrom.

One cannot but a price on saving children from playing in an imperialist funded playground...

Wasn't there some bunch of "republicans' in Limerick a while back who had a campaign against Santa? Or was it Christmas in general?

Christ almighty, anyone else shyte sick of the f***ing WW1 & WW2 commemorations and the creepy normalization of it?

Ask a unionist politician to attend an official famine commemoration in a Catholic church and the f***kers would run a mile.

Many Irish now think that the only Irish worth commemorating are those who died in British uniform. Tis so fc*king mature, so it is.

Give it a fu**ing rest.
