BOBBY SANDS
"...So venceremos, beidh bua againn eigin lá eigin. Sealadaigh abú".
Welcome: A brief note about using the archive and search features and comment screening 
5th-May-2017 11:21 pm


**Note for Dreamwidth site: This is a new import that I will be changing as time permits. I do not have the layout exactly as I wish at this time and will be adding to it. Please feel free to read and comment.

For several years on my journals devoted to Bobby, I have marked the anniversaries of all the hunger strikers as well as significant events. I would like now to refer people to the archive to look at the daily titles from last year, for example, in order to refresh their memory of the history of that time. If I find new articles or anything current to augment this journal, I will of course post it. For current events in the political situation, please refer to SAOIRSE32. I do monitor comments made here, so please feel free to post them.

Regretfully, I have had to introduce comment screening on this journal. It pains me greatly to discover a visible insult to Bobby or any of the brave hunger strikers, and I will no longer allow that to happen. I do have to approve all comments from non-friends now, but I do NOT screen your IP, and you may still comment anonymously. Your comment, if it is respectful, will appear after being seen by me. I do not have to agree with it, but I would like it to be respectful.

You may also read this journal at its alternate site on Blogspot: BOBBY SANDS or BOBBY SANDS on Lj.

The site search is located at the Lj site for now until Google becomes familiar with this location.

Thank you,
micheailin

Im sorry i was not there to dry your final tear
Im sorry i was not there to fill the enemy with fear
Im sorry i was not born to mourn your final morn
Im sorry i was not born to march to your grave
Bobby you were so brave, filled with the blood of a rebel
you and the rest were incredible.
You slayed the evil dragon and shot the horrid baron
So all Ireland so great could stand and celebrate
her freedom and liberty free at last from all the bigotry
Like Collins and Pearce you stood and faught and made the
evil enemy scarce
But Bobby it was worth it for never will you die not as long as there
is a rebel here to hear you cry.
