Remembering Hunger Striker Terence MacSwiney - 100 years on

Remembering Hunger Striker Terence MacSwiney - 100 years on
Terence MacSwiney , Irish Statesman , 1879 - 1920
 It is not those who can inflict the most, but those that can suffer the most who will conquer
 

I am confident that my death will do more to smash the British Empire than my release

- Terence MacSwiney , Irish Nationalist 

Sunday marked the 100th Anniversary of the death of Terence MacSwiney , the Lord Mayor of Cork who starved himself to death at Brixton Prison in London in protest at his unlawful imprisonment by the British Crown   . 

Terence MacSwiney lasted a total of 74 days without food before passing away on 25th October 1920 .
   
MacSwiney , a devout Catholic from North Main Street in Cork , worked as a warehouse clerk before becoming a teacher in Business methods after his graduation from UCC in 1907 .  A keen playwright and Irish language scholar ,  he was co-founder of the Celtic Literary Society , Cork Dramatic Society and in 1913 helped found the Cork Brigade of the Irish Volunteers of which he became a leading figure . 

In 1918 ,  
He was elected MP for Mid Cork in the general election but refused to take his seat in the British Parliament in Westminster , opting instead to be part of the newly founded Irish Independence parliament in Dublin - Dail Eireann.

In March 1920, MacSwiney was elected as Lord Mayor of Cork but shortly afterwards was arrested by the British Crown for sedition and sentenced to two years at Brixton Prison in London . 

On August 11th 1920 , MacSwiney went on hunger strike in protest at his detention and told relatives he'd be "free within a month one way or another".  At the same time , Ten other Irish Volunteers imprisoned in Cork Jail joined MacSwiney in hunger strike , among them was Joe Murphy and Michael Fitzgerald both of whom would also later die from starvation .

Nobody knew at the time that someone could survive without food for a month , so after a month on hunger strike , MacSwiney became a headline figure in world news reports . There was public outcry around the globe and the pressure on Britain became so great that its own King , King George sent two telegrams to his Prime Minister llyod george asking him to release MacSwiney .  

While MacSwiney lay dying ,  18 year old Kevin Barry was awaiting execution in Mountjoy prison in Dublin for his part in the ongoing war of Independence while hunger striker Michael Fitzgerald had already passed away after his fast of 67 days in Cork Jail .  

On his death bed , MacSwiney’s last words to Fr. Dominic , a chaplain to the cork volunteers were - "I want you to bear witness that I die as a Soldier of the Irish Republic"
 

On 25th October 2020 , MacSwiney passed away in Brixton Prison after 74 days without food , on the same day , Hunger striker Joe Murphy passed away in Cork Jail after 76 days without food . 
 

MacSwiney's funeral was held in the Cathedral of St Mary and St Anne in Cork on 31st October 2020 and attracted huge crowds. He is buried in Saint Finbarr's Cemetery in Cork.

RELAX,ENJOY- YOUR IN YOUR GRANNIES KITCHEN. BUT WHERE DO
SPINELESS TRAITORS GO...alone again naturally,A FULL HOUSE

was sad to hear that Cork Councillors Voted against a monument to this man because he wasn't a woman .

the man starved himself to death for Ireland and this is how Cork Councillors repay him .

among those who voted Against the monument was Green Party councillor Oliver Moran and Independent councillor Kieran McCarthy

^
remarkable man . sovereignty - freedom - democracy , thats all he wanted for us and now look at us . 2 x nice , 2 x lisbon , country ruled with iron fist , iron curtain , europhiles and communists joining together to take our little island away from us
^
most people find it hard to go without food for a day never mind 2 months the courage of these men should never be forgotten .

these heroes did not die so our country could be taken over by the German Reichstag ,

Their vision was A sovereign Independent Ireland .. 'we declare the right of the people of ireland to the ownership of ireland and to the unfettered control of irish destinies , to be sovereign and indefeasible'
1916 proclamation

sounds like a good idea too

GIVING IT ALL AWAY- Patriots do not give away THE MOST IMPORTANT.
All is feck all but maintain DIGNITY,HONOUR,LOYALTY AND BELIEF. These
Patriots were PROUD PEOPLE, and every living soul in Ireland is living a life
because of these MEN,WOMEN AND CHILDREN. These HUMAN BEINGS
did the ULTIMATE SACRIFICE FOR IRELANDS IRELAND,and yet at those
times many were ridiculed AND SPAT ON,by TRAITORS. TODAY 2020, the
same FU.KERS SPIT FROM HIGH,they know this and we know them. SEE IT AND BELIEVE IT, BUT DO NOT DENY YOUR OBLIGATION,TO THEM,TO
YOURSELF AND TO IRELAND. Take it all back,ALL BACK,no excuses.

The suffering these people went through for Irish Independence then we gave it all away to the EU .
^
true , we swapped westminster for brussels , never got to see his daughter grow up either

Both Terence MacSwiney and Joe Murphy were the longest lasting Hunger Strikers in history .

FACT . there are "NO WARS" in albania , georgia , nigeria , zimbabwe or south africa . They should Not be using the asylum system to enter Ireland , if they want to come to Ireland they should apply for a work visa like everyone else . hundreds of people looking for homes in Donegal , some are on the housing list years , this is totally unacceptable

its unfair on irish people who are on the housing list for years that people can just arrive at dublin airport and get housed immediately based on their word that they are an asylum seeker. If I went to the local housing office and told them I was homeless , a full investigation would have to be done before they even put my on the housing list .
