Thomas McElwee Vigil in Enniscorthy

A vigil was held for Derry Hunger Striker Thomas McElwee in Enniscorthy last Monday evening. The 30th anniversary of his death was marked with a silent vigil in the towns market square.
Thomas was only twenty three years old when he died on hunger strike in 1981. He was a cousin of fellow hunger strike martyr Francis Hughes.
