Washington Irish Turn Out For Fr. Mc Manus’ Book Launch
Capitol Hill. Sunday, June 10, 2012 – The local DC Irish gathered on Capitol Hill on Sunday, June 10, 2102 for the launching of the American Edition of Fr. Sean Mc Manus’s Memoirs, My American Struggle for Justice in Northern Ireland.
The American Edition expands significantly on the Irish Edition, which was published by Collins Press, Cork, 2011.
The American Edition has fifty extra pages, with 22 additional photos.
Chairperson of the Launch, Barbara Flaherty, introducing Fr. Mc Manus said: “ It is my privilege, honor and joy to be closely involved with the production and promotion of this wonderful book.” And she urged the audience to, “ use the book as the author intended : to reinvigorate the Irish Cause”.
Fr. Mc Manus summarized some of his main themes, and explained : “ The thing that has haunted me all my life is this : Why did people in power, in Church and State , go along with British Government oppression of Catholics in Northern Ireland.”
The NYC Launch of the book is on June 28 at 7 PM in O’Lunney’s Times Square Pub, 145 West 45 th. ST.
Signed copies of the book are available only at irishnationalcaucus.org
