Martin Hurson remembered in Ferns

Martin Hurson, the sixth man to die on the 1981 republican hunger strike, was commemorated on the 30th anniversary of his death last Wednesday evening in Ferns.
Republicans from around County Wexford travelled to Ferns to honour the County Tyrone man who died fighting to win political status for republican prisoners. Liam Morris, the Chairman of the local Ed O' Brien cumann, called for a minutes silence to reflect on the terrible sacrifice that Martin Hurson chose to make in the name of freedom.
