Wreath Laying Ceremony in Memory of Volunteer James McPhilemy, Strabane.
On Saturday 10th of August at 7pm Strabane IRSP will remember Volunteer James McPhilemy who was killed on active service in Clady CoTyrone in 1988. A wreath laying ceremony will take place at his memorial in Clady village organised by his friends and comrades in the IRSP.
Michael McLaughlin continues “James was a great loss to his family, friends and comrades. He was tragically killed by the British Army while on active service in the border village of Clady . 20 year old James lived during extraordinary times when young men and women from Strabane had no other choice but to express their political aspirations by taking up arms against sectarianism, imperialist occupation and oppression. The IRSP are proud to remember the courage of people like Volunteer James McPhilemy during those dark days of struggle. Strabane IRSP are inviting all Republicans and Socialists in the area to come along to Clady on Saturday 10th of August at 7pm to remember James.”
