Bobby Sands trust web Site re-launched

7 November, 2008


Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams MP MLA this morning formally re-launched the Bobby Sands Trust web site.

Speaking at the event Mr. Adams said:

"I think that the work done by the Bobby Sands Trust, which deals with the prison struggles in Armagh and in the H blocks of Long Kesh, is hugely important and significant.

"Due to the diligent work of some republican activists at that time material was kept and archives were developed.

"With the modernisation of the web site, which gets tens of thousands of hits, those who want information now have access to a well researched primary source.

"I think this is really important. It means that those who want to learn about aspects of the situation at that time are now able to read, in the words of those who were involved then, their thoughts and ideas and fears and hopes, and then to be able to form their own judgements based upon all the information provided."
