He was incarcerated in English jails for nine years; often in solitary confinement. In acknowledgement of this, extracts from his prison diary will be read out on the day.“Also, the event will be addressed by Gerry Mac Lochlainn who was imprisoned with Reamonn in England, while the main speaker at the event will be Sinn Féin MEP, and former political prisoner, Martina Anderson. We will also enjoy some music throughout.“I would invite all of Reamonn’s family and friends to join us on Sunday, as republicans from Buncrana, Inishowen and further afield will pay tribute to a man who gave so much for his country.“This will be a time for remembering Reamonn and for recommitting ourselves to the ideals to which he dedicated his life. It promises to be a fitting tribute and all are welcome.”  INISHOWEN SINN FÉIN TO MARK 30TH ANNIVERSARY OF REAMONN MAC LOCHLAINN was last modified: September 22nd, 2015 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:buncranacommemorationdonegalInishowenReamonn Mac Lochlainnlast_img
