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

Hi! Im a catholic girl from Galway, and had always known the name Bobby Sands. But that was it. Recently, i read "Nothing but an unfinished song" and "Blanketmen"- two books that really show what these men went through for their country. I'm now actually ashamed of myself- i'd always considered myself fairly well up on irish history, but i was so shocked at how much i didn't know!! There's no real point to this comment but i just wanted to show my respects to Bobby- may he - and everybody else who gave their lives for this country- rest in peace. xx

Thank you so very much for your comment. I am thankful you made it, and I am glad that you had the opportunity and good fortune to read those books. There are many more good ones too that will open your mind and heart to this time in history. What a wonderful thing! :)
