In the last month the Republican Movement has lost two of its faithful custodians.
Two Irish soldiers snatched from the ranks of Óglaigh na hÉireann (ONH) by their own personal battles.
The only fitting monument to both is to ensure their dream is erected as a reality.
Rest in Peace Óglaigh Henry McErlean agus Dermot McCoy

THREE LOYALIST PROTESTS GET GO-AHEAD.
THE Parades Commission has given the go-ahead for three separate loyalist protests during a republican parade in North Belfast today.
Up to 150 people are expected to take part in the protests at Clifton Street during a parade linked to the Republican Network for Unity (RNU). The parade, organised to remember United Irishman Henry Joy McCracken, have been ordered by the Parades Commission to play only a single drumbeat as they make their way along Clifton Street to his grave at a nearby cemetery. Organisers say they expect up to four bands, 700 participants and 500 supporters to take part in the parade. There was serious loyalist rioting over several nights in the area in 2012 after a similar parade while republicans claimed they were jeered and attacked by missiles during last year’s parade. “The decision to once again allow three protests will put parade participants at risk of loyalist violence as seen in previous years,” he added. A Royal Black Institution parade due to take place along Clifton Street today is not expected to clash with the republican march.

Paramilitary trappings at funeral of true Irish Republican soldier and freedom fighter – RIP T.C. true son of Eire
‘His positive attitude, determination and his focus got him through along with the support of his family and friends, – Fr Aidan Brankin.
THERE were masked men and paramilitary trappings at the funeral of a veteran republican in West Belfast yesterday. Tony (T.C) Catney (55), from upper Suffolk Road, died on Saturday after a long battle with cancer. A true and high profile republican, he was a member of Republican Network for Unity (RNU), supposdedly and roumered to be the policical wing of Oglagh na hEireann (ONH), more recently, the 1916 Societies republican group. A former director of elections for Shame Fein in the 1990s the West Belfast man fell out with the former republican party in 2005 over its support for the Stormont administration. In 1974 he was jailed for life for the murder of 17-year-old Protestant Maurice Knowles and went on to serve 16 years in prison. In 2009 he was arrested in connection with the Real IRA murder of two British soldiers at the Massereene army barracks in Co Antrim but was freed without charge. His remains were yesterday draped in an Irish tricolour, with a beret and gloves set on top, as they arrived at St Oliver Plunkett Church in Lenadoon. A guard of honer walked behind. Among those present at the funeral was Co Derry man, Brian Shivers, whose conviction for the 2009 dissident republican murders of two British soldiers in Co Antrim was overturned last year. During the Mass Fr Aidan Brankin told mourners that Mr Catney had fought for “justice for everyone” during his life. Fr Brankin said his fight for human rights had continued when he went to prison. “His positive attitude, determination and his focus got him through along with the support of his family and friends,” he said. On his release, mourners heard he was “detrmined to do what he could to help improve conditions” in jail. “He always stayed true to his own political republican beliefs,” he said. Fr Brankin said Mr McCatney had also worked as part of the Suffolk Road Residents’ Forum and the Lenadoon Community Forum. “He was inspirational in his family, amoung his friends,” the priest said, adding that he would do “anything for anyone”. Following the Mass Mr Catney’s remains were again draped in the tricolour as they were carried out of the church. Outside, a paramilitray-style colour pary, made up of eight men with their faces covered, escorted the remains to the republican plot at Milltown Cemetery where a number of speeches were made, including one on behalf of republican prisoners in Maghaberry Prison. Afterwads, Mr Catney’s remains were taken for a cremation service.
Shots fired in final salute
ARMED and masked members of the ‘IRA’ have fired a volley of shots in tribute to a true and veteran Belfast republican Tony ‘TC’ Catney.
It has been claimed the “final salute” was fired from three AK47 assault riffles somewhere in Belfast on Tuesday night. The 56-year-old true republican from West Belfast died last Saturday after a long illness with cancer. Pictures have emerged showing four men wearing paramilitary-style clothing and balaclavas standing over a tribute to the former Irish republican prisoner. It is understood three of the men fired several shots over a framed picture of the former blanket man, which rested beside a tricolour and a floral tribute spelling the lettters ‘IRA’. Hundreds of republicans from across Ireland attended his Requiem Mass at St Oliver Plunkett’s Church before making their way to Milltown Cemetery in West Belfast. A lone piper and eight masked men led the cortege through the graveyard to the republican plot where a minute’s silence was held before a lament was played. The coffin, which was draped in a tricoulour, beret and gloves, was also flanked by dozens of republicans dressed in white shirts and black ties. An oration written by republican prisoners was delivered by Lurgan republican paul Duffy in the cemetery’s republican plot. Several RUC/PSNI Land Rovers took up position outside the gates of Milltown after the funeral cortege entered the church grounds while several more remained out of sight in a car park a short distance away on the Andersontown Road.
