Death of Iñaki Uriarte

On Monday 26 July, Iñaki Uriarte, a man dedicated to furthering Basque culture, language and traditions, died in Bilbao (Basque Country). Uriarte, who lived briefly in Ireland in 1999, was a journalist and Basque language activist. He was also the President of the Association of Popular Organisations in Bilbao.

Outlining his life in a few lines reduces what he was to what he did. He was much more than that. Iñaki was a good man, and will be always remembered by his wife Arantza, his daughter Olatz (currently in prison) and his many friends in Ireland and all over the world.
