Join us for an online conversation, via Zoom, with long-time Irish Republican activist and former Sinn Féin spokesperson Danny Morrison.
Join us on Wednesday April 26 at 6 PM for a Zoom conversation with former Sinn Féin spokesperson Danny Morrison.
Few Irish can forget the Irish Long Kesh Prison hunger strikes of the 1980’s that left an indelible mark on Ireland’s struggle with Great Britain. It was an event that held the world spellbound and would change the face of Irish politics forever cementing Sinn Féin’s standing as a major political party in Ireland.
At the age of 22, Danny Morrison was the editor of the Sinn Féin newspaper, Republican News and later would become editor of An Phoblacht/Republican News. Having served time himself in Long Kesh, he became the spokesperson for Bobby Sands and others during the 1981 hunger strikes which would later that year take the lives of Sands and his comrades. Morrison’s penchant for writing soon led to the publication of several books on the struggles faced at the hands of British oppression.
