The Easter Lily, Lile na Cásca, is the badge in the shape of a calla lily flower, worn at Easter by Irish Republicans as a symbol of rememberence for Irish Republican volunteers who have died in service to their Country.

The Easter Lily was introduced in 1926 by Cumann na mBan. Proceeds from the sale of the badge went to the Irish Republican Prisoners’ Dependants Fund. Traditionally, they were sold outside church gates on Easter Sunday and worn at republican commemorations.

The Easter lily continues to be sold and worn to this day with proceeds continuing to go to Irish Republican Prisoners. Please wear one in memory of all our patriot dead and also to support POWs, paper lilies are usually given on a donation basis while metal pins are sold for a small cost of around €£3-5.

Available from most Republican organisations including Republican SINN FÉIN Poblachtach, IRPWA Ireland, Cogús POWs and some independent sellers.
