I can't remember when I first met Ed Horgan, but it must have been Tim Hourigan who introduced us (at the time I joked a lot that Tim looked like a cop, so when he introduced me to his retired army captain friend I thought he must be special branch or something more sinister even!). :-)

For months and years Tim and Ed have kept the lookout at Shannon, visited prisoners in Limerick prison, and supported activists in court all over the country. Ask anyone else who has been there.

The boat action was sweeeeeet. I'm sorry I can't be there to support you in person during your trial, but my thoughts will be with you three!
