IRA New Year statement

The following is the full text of the annual New Year statement by
the Provisional IRA.

The leadership of Oglaigh na hEireann sends New Year greetings to
our friends and supporters at home and abroad. We send best
wishes especially to republican prisoners and their families and
we commend those presently working for their early release.

We salute the discipline and commitment of IRA Volunteers,
particularly following the momentous decisions by the Army
leadership this year.

We remain wedded to our republican objectives. We are confident
that these objectives will be achieved.

We fully support and commend everyone working for these goals,
especially our comrades in Sinn Fein.

We send greetings to the republican activist base which has been
so steadfast in the face of severe provocations this last 12

We appeal for continued unity and determination in the year
ahead. We are mindful that 2006 marks the 25th anniversary of the
Hunger Strikes and 90th anniversary of the Proclamation of the
Republic in 1916.

We look forward to popular celebrations and commemorations of
these events.

There is an onus on all political leaders to play their part in
achieving the essential political progress desired by all the
people of Ireland.


P O Neill,
Irish Republican Publicity Bureau, Dublin.
