This will be a lunchtime Derry launch of Richard O’Rawe’s new book on Gerry Conlon.. Gerry was a comrade, fellow traveller and big supporter of the work of the Bloody Sunday March Committee. His passing is a great loss and he is fondly remembered.
We are honoured that Richard O’Rawe will be present to read from In The Name Of The Son and sign copies. Richard was a lifelong friend of Gerry’s so there will be stories to tell and share. The book is a heart-breaking read, and must have been, at times, heart-breaking to write. That said Gerry’s intelligence, quick wit, charm and ability to be the life and soul of the room also come shinning through.
The event will be chaired by Betty Doherty, Bloody Sunday March Committee.
To help us remember the man we share this link to his launch of our wee fundraising black ribbon badge to mark the 2013 commemoration march and events.
