Armagh Ógra Shinn Féin took part in commemorative day to remember the Hunger Strikes of 1980-1981 on Friday 1st September in the Armagh City Hotel.

With a large exhibition and guided tours of Armagh Jail by ex-prisoners running from 2.00pm there was plenty on show.

Armagh Ógra Shinn Féin was joined by Lurgan Ógra members for our tour of the jail, Mary Doyle (ex Hunger Striker) and Sile Darragh (OC of women prisoners during the Hunger Strikes) were our guides. They told us how they were forced onto the “no wash” protest and later went on Hunger Strike with the men in Long Kesh. They explained the layout of the jail where they were moved to and from and the harsh treatment that they were subjected to while they were in there.

Armagh Ógra Shinn Féin would like to thank all the ex prisoners who took time out to do the guided tours. We would also like to remind people that “Awaiting the Lark” Ógra Shinn Féin tribute to the Hunger Strikers is available at local Sinn Fein offices or through the ÓSF website.

As long as New PSF stay silent on the POWs in Maghaberry they are just making a mockery of the 1981 Hunger Strikers, not commorating them.
