The Ard Chomhairle of Republican Sinn Féin wish to state the following:
“Our position is exactly the same as it was prior to the Ard-Fheis in November 8/9, 2014.
(a) Republican Sinn Féin does not, and will not ask permission from the Six-County or 26-County statelets to march on the streets in any part of Ireland;
(b) That any area looking to have a band at their parades must bring it to the Ard Chomhairle three months in advance;
(c) Any band seeking permission to play at our marches will not be used.”
No area can ask a band to play for them without permission from the Organisation.
