Ballinasloe marks Bobby Sands anniversary
He called on all the people of Ireland to remember the past, but work for the living.
“From the Fenians of old to the youth of today, there is a part for all to play in creating an Ireland of Equality, Justice and Freedom that Bobby Sands died for. That part is needed more than ever in the towns and parishes of County Galway”, Connolly said.
Guest speaker on the day was Séanna Walsh, a close friend of Bobby Sands.
