North Wexford Remembers Michael Gaughan

County Wexford republicans gathered in North Wexford last Thursday night to remember hunger striker Michael Gaughan. A good crowd assembled at the 1798 monument in Gorey to remember the ultimate sacrifice made by the Mayo man 37 years ago.

The Chairman of the Ed O' Brien Gorey Cumann, Liam Morris, called for a minutes silence for genuine reflection on the life and death of Michael Gaughan, before the wll loved balled "Take me home to Mayo" was played.

The next hunger strike commemoration will be in memory of Joe McDonnell, and will be held in Enniscorthy on the 8th of July. Further details will follow.
