West Tyrone Remember the Heroes of Long Kesh

West Tyrone Ógra Shinn Féin organised a tour of Long Kesh Concentration Camp, last Friday 29th September. The tour was very emotive as the delegation visited the hospital wing where 10 Irish Republican Prisoners bravely give their life on Hungerstrike 25 years ago.

The Cages, and H4 were also visited.

All together 16 Young Republican activists attended the tour and witnessed at first hand Long Kesh, the site of so much tragedy and torture, yet also massive resilience and struggle.

We salute the Prisoners, the Blanketmen and the Hungerstrikers!

The Prison Struggle, Blanket, no wash and Hungerstrike were a catalyst in the struggle for Irish Liberation.

Ógra Shinn Féin continue on that struggle with pride!

In memory of the 10!
