On Monday, 5 May, the 27th anniversary of the death of republican Hunger Striker Bobby Sands, over 200 people attended a white line picket in memory of the 1981 Hunger Strike leader and former MP for Fermanagh/South Tyrone in his home area of Twinbrook in Belfast. The demonstration on the Stewartstown Road was organised by Colin Sinn Féin and coincided with the launch of a new Sinn Féin cumann in the area – the Rooney/Farrell/Sands Cumann.
