Expect Stephen Collins/Patsy McGarry/John Bruton to launch a campaign to have a memorial to the RIC/Black & Tans placed alongside it.

It's always a FG supported event, for obvious reasons.

It'll be interesting the number of duplicated commemorations for the next couple of years; government approved and attended ones and SF black beret club ones.

Why would anyone commemorate an assassination other than the perpetrators?
It would be more likely to be an event to mark the centenary of the incident rather than commemorate it.
