Pat Sheehan, an IRA Volunteer longest on the 1981 hunger strike when it ended, is featured in an article simultaneously published in today’s Belfast Telegraph and the London Independent. Pat, a widower with a young son to the late Siobhan O’Hanlon, served a total of over twenty years in jail and was also the target of loyalist assassins when a teenager.

Two months ago Pat was selected at a West Belfast convention to replace as an MLA Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams who has resigned in order to fight the Louth constituency in the next general election in the Republic. (Picture by Justin Kernoghan)

    It is with great respect and humility that i remember the men who died on hunger strike, and those who were on hunger strike and survived . Again it is with great respect and humility that i say thankyou to those survivors of the hunger strike who continue the struggle which Bobby Sands and his comrades gave their lives for. Men like Pat Sheehan, Raymond McCartney and many more are a credit to the republican cause and deserve the gratitude of everyone of us.
