NEWRY and Armagh MLA Mickey Brady has hailed the large local turn-out at Sunday?s Hunger Strike commemoration in County Tyrone.

 

The event was held in Galbally, the birthplace of Hunger Striker Martin Hurson.

 

Mr Brady commented: ?It was fantastic to see so many men, women and children from Newry and Armagh attending this year?s national commemoration in Tyrone.

 

?The organisers of the rally must also be commended for the event, which featured many dramatisations along the route of the parade.

 

?It is important that 28 years after the deaths of the 10 hunger strikers, we continue to remember their sacrifice in such a fitting manner.?

 

Mr Brady also paid tribute to the republican flute bands from south Armagh who took part in the commemoration.

 

 

 

What a hypocrite, I do not recall Mickey feeling such injustice about the plight of the hunger strikers in 1981. I never seen him attend one single march to support their cause. In fact he was associated with the Sticks at that time and in Newry they attacked and beat young people for street protesting in Derrybeg at that time.

Maybe Mickey would like us to forget that he didnt come out in support of the hunger strikes, but I am sure other posters on her will verify what I am saying. A man can not just be judged on what he does, but on what he failed to do. Mickey totally failed to support the hunger strike at the time.

Mickey is a symptom of what is wrong with SF. Just like "New Labour" they have come to power, but at the cost of erroding their core support, populating their ranks with voter frendily canditates who have no roots in the Provisional movement at the expense of activists who helped to build the party when being a member of SF was likley to get your door booted in at 5am rather than having tea and biscuts at Hilsborough or wherever.

Mickey, do yourself a favour and think before you speak on this subect. I remember going to the hunger strikers funerals, probally along the same route as the busses from Newry did this week, we had the windows of the busses caved in by Loyalists. Didnt see you there Mickey, mabye you were with the sticks on the Camlough Road looking out for rioters. Disgrace.......

Thats a good idea for the next commeration. Mickey sitting in his armchair on the back of a float, to show his input at the time. Believe it or not he even gave the oration in Downpatrick at Easter this year. Yes Mickey who did not support the Provisional movement prior to the ceasefires, stood at the graveside of men who died during a war he didnt support. It is important he is reminded some of us do remember..

No Mellows, not at all. I am just pointing out that Mickey Brady has a brass neck to come out with this statement when he blatantly failed to support the hunger strike. The grouping he was associated with at that time was involved in a concerted campagain against young lads who were involved in street disturbances, many were attacked and beaten for their involvment in rioting supporting the hunger strikers.

 

If Mickey feels he can release public statements on this subject, then I think it only fair that those of us who know the hypocrisy of his stance, expose it. I am sure you agree Mellows

should we not be trying to bring all of those who may have had no previous involvement in Republicanism into Republicanism rather than deriding those that actually do ?

 

If you going to disallow people on that basis you're going to end up with ever decreasing circles.

the majority of the population of this island were 100% uninvolved in Republicanism, my only point is we should be trying to involve them all rather than attacking them when they do.

 

You'll all attack Brady here but then cheer on the RNU whose mantra is all about where you are today and not where you were in the past.

I firmly believe as I said in other posts ,that everyone has the right to join a process at any stage and to change their political viwpoint in doing so-it is all part of a transition attached to the individuals political conscience

     Erskine Childers DSC was pro British Empire who ended his political life at the hands of the Free State forces for his transition from Imperialism to Republicanism.....I would lay no charges of Johnny come lately to this courageous republican .

     Just as many would have been repulsed at Childers early years as many are over Bradys transition .

     I do however find it difficult to relate to any individual who did not support our gallant hunger strikers....it only needed your feet on the street to show that solidarity-no-one had to feel compelled to lift arms to support this most peacefull and dignified form of protest....,those that failed to do that -failed to be rationally associated later with just what these men died for.

I was alive thenand:

I know that Mickey Brady was associated with the Officials who attacked rioters in Newry. I seen with my own eyes friends beaten to a pulp by these vigialanty thugs.

 

I seen the people who, rain or shine, were there at the H block rallies and Mickey Brady was never one of those people.

 

Mellows, I am not on here as a cheerleader for any grouping, RNU or otherwise. Mickey made a public statement regards the hunger strike commerations. You must concede that public statements that smack of hypocracy can, and should, be challanged.

 

If Mickey released a statement on welfare rights, then fair play, he knows a lot about that subject.

But the hunger strikes that he did not support..! Come off it

Interesting post....very good reading.  I think this Micky Brady guy may have changed his viewpoint over the years from reading above.  I don't know him so I'm not judging him.  This is obviously a sensitive issue regarding the hunger strikes.  It is important for people to join republicanism as unity is important for the future.  Maybe he should have made it clear in his statement or releasted another statement to explain that he wasn't a supporter of the hunger strikers back then maybe to put his stance right for his viewpoint.  You're right, things can't be swept under the carpet and forgotten about.  It would be like collusion and not owning up to it.  The past is the past, but the truth has to be recognised first.  Very good post socialist95.

I dont think that the post's above about Mickey Brady are calling into doubt if the workers party are a socialist organisation. What is apparent is that Mickey Brady put himself forward as a spokesperson for PSF in relation to a topic about the hunger strikes. It now transpires that Mickey did not come out in any shape or form, in support of the strike at the time. It is right that this should be exposed. Mickey should maybe keep himself to talking about things he knows about..welfare rights etc, not dabble in revisionist ramblings. This is only my opinion...

seems former republican $£ councillor brendy boyzone curran has resorted to attacking davy hyland on his facebook wall...how pathetic but not surprising and attempting to smear former newry IPLO vols..forgetting that the provos themselves absolved the newry and armagh units from any accusations..no one from newry was ever exiled by the provos at all..shows the cheapshots curran and his followers are getting up to to try and blacken davy...must be running scared..
