Che Guevara

Once again... October 9 2020 marks the anniversary of the fall in combat of Ernesto Che Guevara, freedom fighter and legendary guerilla born: June 14, 1928, Rosario, Argentina.

His father Ernest Guevara Lynch said "The first thing to note is that in my son's veins flowed the blood of the Irish rebels", he said in a 1969 interview. He went on: "Che inherited some of the features of our restless ancestors. There was something in his nature which drew him to distant wandering, dangerous adventures and new ideas".

As an Irishman I must again reiterate my immense pride in the fact that Che Guevara has family connections with Ireland.

a toast to Che... y hasta siempre

Navajo & Hopi Families COVID-19 Relief Fund

IMHO is beholden on us as the Irish nation to make a contribution to the current fundraiser to the Navajo & Hopi Families COVID-19 Relief Fund as a small token for the Great Hunger / Famine relief provided by the 1847 donation from the Choctaw Tribe.

We as a Nation will never forget the generosity of our Choctaw Brothers and Sisters who in their own time of need saw fit to make a contribution to the suffering in Ireland in 1847.

Go raibh maith agat go léir

Now it is our turn, please make a contribution.
