Cumann na Saoirse Náisiúnta was founded by Michael Flannery, George Harrison, Joe Stynes, and others in 1987 after the split of 1986. In founding the NIFC, the intent of the founding members was to build an organization that would safeguard and ensure that the traditional Republican principles and values would continue to be represented here in the United States of America, as defined by Wolfe Tone and sanctified by the blood of countless thousands of patriots down through the centuries including Tone himself, Emmet, Pearse and more recently the martyrs of 1981.

After the ceremony, an informal gathering will be held at Connolly’s Corner, 71-15 Grand Ave, Maspeth, NY 11378
