McCann gets lifetime award for Bloody Sunday campaign…

IMHO, a well deserved life time award for Eamonn McCann for his long term advocacy of the families of those killed on Bloody Sunday… (not to mention a great deal else besides). Eamonn is one of the few examples we have of individuals who have been robustly determined to breach the many social silences that bedevil Irish society, north and south of the border… A grateful  H/T to erstwhile reader Rory!!
