George Brown Commemoration

category kilkenny | miscellaneous | event notice author Tuesday June 17, 2008 14:10author by Sean Walsh - George Brown Memorial Committee Inistiogeauthor phone (087) 125 7492 Report this post to the editors

Spanish Civil War fighter and working class activist to be honoured

Commemoration and other events at Inistioge, Co. Kilkenny, Friday and Saturday 27th and 28th June 2008.

George Brown was a member of the XVth International Brigade in the Spanish Civil War who fell at the Battle of Brunete in 1937.

George's parents were both Irish. His father Francis came from Inistioge and his mother Mary Lackey came from Tullogher, both in Co. Kilkenny. His mother Mary returned to her native South Kilkenny in 1906 for the birth of her son George but he grew up mainly in Manchester. He was a trade unionist and working class activist from an early age and was active in the work and hunger marches of the early 1930s. He instinctively opposed the rise of facism and travelled to Spain to fight Franco's fascists as part of the 15th International Brigade. He died in Brunete in 1937 but he continues to be remembered.
