A proper patriot.

I have a friend who claims to have the Tricolour that draped his coffin.

A lesson in history Muintir--11 people went on that Hunger strike ,McSwiney was moved to Brixton and the other ten continued the hunger strike in Cork --In the glare of publicity for McSwiney these became known as "the forgotten hunger strikers" three of these died and Arthur Griffith ordered the remainder off the strike as the British would have allowed them all to die. The survivors entered the Guinness book of records for the longest survivors of a hunger strike. As I know you are interested in the GAA one of the survivors was Joe Kenny of Grenagh great grandfather of the Cork Hurler Tom Kenny. Indeed the courage and suffering of the ten was as Great as McSwineys but history has forgotten them.

Ah yes indeed Less well remembered are MacSwiney’s comrades on hunger strike in Cork Prison – Michael Fitzgerald of Fermoy, who died a week before him, and Joseph Murphy of Cork City, who died on the same day as MacSwiney.
Didnt know about Tom Kenny's great grandfathers now...thanks for that!

I just played it there and the pop up ad came on which read like this "HUNGRY? ORDER NOW FROM JUST EAT.COM". Youtube can be sick fuckers.
