38th Anniversary of the 1981 Hunger Strikes


Saturday, August 24 2019
Mass at St. Patrick’s Church 6pm
1711 Liberty Ave., Pittsburgh (Strip District)

All are welcome to attend

The Pittsburgh Irish American Community has always supported this remembrance and we thank the Irish American Unity Conference, Ancient Order of Hibernians, Ladies Ancient Order of Hibernians, Conway Mill Trust, Knights of Equity, Gaelic Arts Society, Echoes of Erin Radio and the Ireland Institute of Pittsburgh for their commitment to our history

“Time has not dimmed the memory or healed the wounds caused by the death of the 10 young men who suffered the ultimate sacrifice rather than submit to tyranny. Our sons hungered for the sake of justice, and they will be remembered when the power that held and persecuted them will have vanished from this Earth. Many people in America shared in our grief, supported us in our hour of need and to this day hold memory of the Hunger Strikers dear. To all of these we give our heartfelt thanks and may God hold you in the hollow of his hand until the sacrifice of the Hunger Strikers can be honored in a free and united Ireland” – Statement from the Mothers of the Hunger Strikers

After Mass please raise a glass at Mullaney’s Harp & Fiddle, 2329 Penn Ave., to honor all who have sacrificed for Ireland
