Four Day Fast to Support Irish POWs and their Families
27 Jul 2005
Modified: 12:48:42 PM
My name is Matthew Kavanah and I work the Boston chapter of the Irish Freedom Committee. I have decided to go forward with this and will do a
personal 4 day fast from 8:00 AM Monday August 1st
2005 until 8:00 AM Friday August 5th 2005.

My name is Matthew Kavanah and I work the Boston chapter of the Irish Freedom Committee. I have decided to go forward with this and will do a
personal 4 day fast from 8:00 AM Monday August 1st
2005 until 8:00 AM Friday August 5th 2005

This 4 day stretch of time will symbolize a few
things. First, a 4 day period will mark 24 hours for
each of the 4 ancient provinces of Ireland - Ulster,
Munster, Leinster and Connaught. Moreover, however,
the day that I begin my fast, August 1st, will mark
the date when INLA Vol. Kevin Lynch died after 71 days
on hunger strike and August 2nd will commemorate the
sacrifice of IRA Vol. Kieran Doherty who died after 73
days on hunger strike.

So, what am I asking for? I am asking for your
support. All of the money that I raise will go
directly to support and relief for POWs' families. I
will remit all of the money to a family representative
and it's as simple really as that; all I am asking for
is for each of you to please think about what our
brave men and women go through on a daily basis...dig
deep into your pockets and please let's all come
together on this.

For details please email me at mkavanah (at) yahoo.com

Slan go foill

Beir Bua!
