Ray McCreesh & Patsy O' Hara remembered in New Ross

A vigil was held in New Ross yesterday to remember hunger strikers Ray McCreesh and Patsy O' Hara on the 30th anniversary of their deaths. Heavy rain and the Leinster match couldnt keep Wexford Republicans away, who gathered in numbers to commemorate the lives and deaths of these young Irish men.

Wexford Sinn Féin Cllr Anthony Kelly and Enniscorthy Sinn Féin Cllr Johnny Mythen were among those who attended the event, which was organised by the County Wexford '81 committee. Further events will be held throughout the county to mark this anniversary year.
