Pádraig Ó Murchú (1922-2016)

 

The death occurred on 22 March of Pádraig Ó Murchú (Paddy Murphy) in his 94th year.

 

Paddy, from Brownsford, Inistioge, Co. Kilkenny, led a very full life and will be fondly remembered by his family, relatives and a large diverse circle of friends as a man committed to his community, a champion of Irish culture – language and music, and a Republican Socialist in the purest sense of the word.

 

To those of us involved in the George Brown Memorial Committee, we shall forever be indebted to him for his unwavering belief that the lessons of the Spanish Civil War are a source of inspiration and guidance for those promoting true democracy in the modern world.
