category tyrone | history and heritage | event notice author Monday March 14, 2011 13:43author by Tir Éoghain Gael - Éirí na Gréine Report this post to the editors

Tyrone Republican Ex Prisoner group Éirí na Gréine are hosting a forum including public talks and discussion looking at the 1981 Hunger Strike.

As well as recalling events from 30 years ago, ‘The People’s Forum’ will also look at the legacy of the Hunger Strike, the future and the particular role that young people will play in shaping a new society. The event is organised through the Éirí na Gréine ‘Looking Back to Move Forward’ project.

The event will take place in Quinn’s Corner, County Tyrone on Saturday 26th March from 12pm – 4pm.

The first part of the event is titled ‘Looking Back - The 1981 Hunger Strike’ led by Brendan ‘Bik’ McFarlane who was OC of the IRA prisoners in Long Kesh during the Hunger Strike, and Jackie McMullan who endured 48 days on the 1981 Hunger Strike.

In the concluding session, people will look at the legacy of the Hunger Strike with the theme of ‘Moving Forward – 30 Years On, A Risen People’ in a discussion led by Kathryn Reilly, who was one of the youngest candidates in the recent election in the 26 counties and recently elected TD for Meath West, Peadar Toibín.

Lunch will be provided between both talks.

Speaking ahead of the event Éirí na Gréine Project manager Barry McNally said:

“The People’s Forum will aim to build understanding and provide an insight into the 1981 Hunger Strike from key people who were involved in this pivotal moment in recent Irish history. It will also explore the significant impact and legacy of the Hunger Strike, and how it has helped shape the society we live in today, and the type of Ireland we aspire to in the future. This event is open to everyone, and will provide interest to many different people including former political prisoners, students studying this as part of their curriculum, to people who have an interest in Irish History, and those who lived through and took part in solidarity events in 1981.”
