The chants glorified the proscribed Irish Republican Army, which an independent report in 2015 found remained armed and in existence. 

Despite being vocal on Unionist bonfires, the Alliance party, Sinn Fein and the SDLP have remained silent in relation to the pro-terror chanting at the taxpayer funded festival. 

In recent days convicted IRA bomber Gerry Kelly has called for Nationalist parties to unite in pursuit of Irish unity. 

It would seem that this pan-Nationalist coalition is already in existence given that the SDLP and Alliance party regularly vote alongside Sinn Fein on all major social and cultural issues- including the targeting of all aspects of Unionist cultural expression. 

Republican festivals have caused controversy in recent years when another band performing indulged in numerous pro-terror chants alongside vile abuse of British soldiers. 

The band was not prosecuted for this hate crime. The Director of Public Prosecutions has previously taken part in talks at the festival and is known to have acted for almost all of the IRA’s most senior members during the conflict.

It is unclear whether any taxpayer’s money was used specifically to pay for Sunday nights terror fest which included the pro-terror chants that can be heard HERE


Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading the Unionist Voice than ever but unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can.

The Unionist Voice is editorially independent, meaning we set our own agenda. Our journalism is free from commercial bias. No one edits our Editor. No one steers our opinion. This is important because it enables us to give a voice to the voiceless, challenge the powerful and hold them to account. It’s what makes us different to so many others in the media, at a time when factual, honest reporting is critical.

f everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as £1, you can support the Unionist Voice– and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
