Chroniclers are privileged to enter where they list, to come and go through keyholes, to ride upon the wind, to overcome in their soarings up and down, all obstacles of distance, time and place.

Celebration of life of BOB DOYLE & Comrades - Celebraciones por las vidas de BOB DOYLE y sus camaradas : Dublin Sat 14 feb '09

As many of you already know, Bob Doyle, last surviving Irish soldier of the International
Brigades died last week, on the night of Thursday/Friday 22-23rd January 2009, just 3
weeks short of his 93rd birthday, after several weeks illness, in hospital...
... near his sons'
home in north London. He had returned five weeks before his death from trips to Barcelona
and Belfast, where he had spoken at events commemorating the Brigades in the Civil War.

The family expect to hold the funeral in London at 11.30am on Tuesday 10th Feb next.

Following that, family members plan to come to Dublin where on Sat 14th Feb we will
celebrate the lives of Bob and his comrades of the International Brigades, starting at
12 noon from the Garden of Remembrance, Parnell Square,
proceeding down O'Connell Street, and turning left along the Liffey to Liberty Hall where
a wreath will be laid at the plaque with the names of 60 Irish Brigaders who died in Spain.

We'll book a trade union premises in the centre of Dublin for a reception, with speeches,
songs and music, hopefully a film or two, and the gathering of all the many friends and
relatives of Bob and his comrades. Speakers from Madrid are expected, and we ask
all coming to bring your banners, and we will send you full details (venue etc) shortly.
- Please pass on this message to all interested,

"La Lucha Continua,"

Harry Owens.
