List and addresses to write to Irish POWS

29 Nov

Today in Kitchener we has a letter writing night for Irish Republican prisoners. The event was well attened and successful, despite the fact that someone screwed up on a card and we ran out of stamps for Desmond Hamill (we will mail that card soon.). Yet you dont need to wait for letter writing night to write a letter, this holiday remember to write or send a postcard to those brave Irish people locked inside the belly of the beast.Below is a list of names and addresses of irish POWs that I took from the IRPWA page, please take the time to write to them.

    Beautiful. I will write to them also. Sorry I couldn’t attend. I made a batch of walnut ink with Guinness and will use that to write with. Might make a few people smile. I know, i know, a whole bottle of the beauty drink! LOL The letter writing will be appreciated I’m sure. Contact with people is so important when a folk is in prison, especially on holidays. For these guys to know that people in Canada care enough to write makes a difference, I’m sure. Thanks for sharing your event.
