Members of Saoradh march to Bodenstown cemetery for their annual Wolfe Tone commemoration

A dissident republican party linked to the paramilitary group that murdered journalist Lyra McKee in Londonderry has vowed to continue the "great struggle" in Ireland.

Saoradh held its annual Wolfe Tone commemoration at Bodenstown, Co Kildare, yesterday.

Supporters sweltered in the heat as a paramilitary colour party marched to the graveside where wreaths to the leader of the United Irishmen were laid.

Saoradh chairman Brian Kenna read out a message of solidarity from "republican PoWs" expressing their determination to fight "imperialism" . National executive member Davy Jordan said republicans "need to take ownership of the great struggle".

He added: "Let us redouble our revolutionary determination. Victory to the Irish working class."

Ms McKee was shot dead by the New IRAin Londonderry as she observed street disorder in April.
