Francis Hughes remembered in Castlebridge

County Wexford Republicans gathered in the memorial garden in Castlebridge last Thursday evening to remember hunger striker Francis Hughes on the 30th anniversary of his death.

The occasion was organised by the local ’81 commemorative committee as part of a series of events aimed at reminding and educating the people of County Wexford about the H Block hunger strike, which saw ten republican prisoners die on hunger strike in the summer of 1981.

A vigil will be held in New Ross next Saturday (the 21st) to remember hunger strikers Raymond McCreesh and Patsy O’ Hara.
