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

Go away cold winter clouds
Through away your warm woolen shrouds
Come out you summer sun
Its time to have some fun
Bobby look down on those Irish babling streams
Enlighting us with your warm tendor beams
Show us the way with your wisdom
To a new free green kingdom
May you look down on every Irish city
cast upon it your pity,
But soon dry your tears
A new day is coming after all these years
Together we walk one step closer
Every year were one year older
Freedom is coming be ready be prepared
Freedom is coming for all those who cared
Dawn the begining of a new day
Bobby thinks as he looks over the bay
To himself he screams from his heart,
IRELAND BE FREE!! IRELAND BE FREE!!
coming is the day ireland will be free



dedicated to all those who want to be free
