Many thanks for the sacrifice you made in defence of socialism.
I was very pleased to attend this great series of well organised events. The lectures were good, both well attended, the weather held out, and it was again inspirational to hear Jack and Bob speak of the need for people today to be active with the labour movement.
Sean left out that they have produced a very glossy booklet, full of new material, images, etc. that anyone with an interest in the SCW would be glad to obtain.
It's available, Euro10 plus post, say Euro13, from the George Brown Memorial Committee, The Square, Inistioge, Kilkenny.
Congratulations to the local committee and I look forward to next years events.
