The statue of Easter Rising veteran and former IRA Chief of Staff Sean Russell in Dublin’s Fairview Park has again been vandalised this time have the entire plinth painted in the rainbow colours which are today associated with the LGBTQP agenda.
Erected in 1951 in honour of the 1916 Rising veteran and one time chief of staff of the IRA, the statue has attracted controversy as Russel had numerous contacts with the Third Reich attempting to secure support for an armed campaign against British rule in the North of Ireland.
Caretaker Taoiseach Leo Varadkar, in pandering to the political correctness mob and jumping on yet another progressive bandwagon, has recently referenced the statue of Russell as one of those in Ireland that may need to be taken down.
The statue honours not only Russell but the 33 IRA volunteers who died on active service in the 1930’s and 40’s whether killed in action, executed or dying on hunger strike.
No group has yet claimed responsibility for the defacement but in the past so-called “anti-fascists” have taken the credit for attacks on the memorial.
Dublin City Council have since cleaned the statue on Tuesday evening.
