SISTERS MARCH FOR MARIAN PRICE INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY

IRISH AMERICAN PRIEST VISITS MARIAN PRICE


I don’t think anyone has ever made a greater impression on me than Marian Price. 



She and her late sister Dolours are, of course, iconic figures in the Irish freedom 

struggle. 



Indeed, there are probably no two women or men to match their heroism.

And, yet, it was not Marian’s heroic stature that so deeply moved me.



It was, rather, her gentleness, soft-spokeness and loveliness… That despite all the outrageous, vengeful, cruel and vicious treatment by the British-Northern Ireland Government, she remains a dignified, gracious and beautiful human being.



I visited Marian in her prison-hospital in Belfast on Friday, February22, 2013. Along 
with her attorney and husband, I spent ninety minutes with her.



I had gone back to Ireland for a family funeral. And the first thing Marian did was to 
express condolences to me.



There she was almost two years in prison, six months gravely ill a prison hospital, just 
trying to recover from the death of her beloved sister and she the takes time to comfort me !



The British-Northern Ireland Government is criminal in its treatment of Marian. 



Anyone in a position of power in Ireland – North or South – who has turned their back on Marian is criminally irresponsible. 



Shame on them, and shame on former colleagues who have deserted her.

This is on of the most shameless incidents in the sad history of the Irish struggle.



How can one have confidence in a government that treats Marian Price in 

such a vicious way? Is this what we were promised by the peace-process? 


Is this what the political Parties, North and South, are asking Irish-Americans to support?
