Mná na hÉireann

Friday 28th October, Park Hotel, Clonmel

A gathering of strong Republican women who have lived in the shadows for too long and who have endured unimaginable pain, intimidation and suffering for our common cause which is freedom, equality and justice for all on the island. The speakers on the night shared their stories and let us have a glimpse into how it was and how it can still be.

The guest speakers on the night were: Martina Anderson M.E.P., Joan McDermott speaking on the Mother and Baby Scandal, Jennifer McCann ex POW, Mary Doyle North Belfast Councillor and survivor of the 1980 Hunger-strike.

The night was hosted by the Clonmel Sinn Féin Cumann – the George Plant Cumann – and was presented by Deputy Mayor Sinn Féin Councillor Catherine Carey.
