CABHAIR Annual Testimonial Dinner , Dance and Reunion , May 2009.

CABHAIR Annual Testimonial Dinner and Republican Reunion 2009.

Going back to at least the early 1970’s , the Republican Movement, and supportive and affiliated organisations , have come together each year to choose a handful of individuals who are deemed suitable emissaries to represent all that Irish Republicanism stands for and that which it seeks to obtain. Having decided on the best honorees possible , a Dinner , Dance and Reunion is held to properly convey the Movement’s appreciation to those people. And that pleasurable task has been undertaken this year , too –
On Saturday May 16th 2009 , seven Irish Republicans will be honoured at a function to be held for them in Dublin , in the Morrison Hotel on Ormond Quay, at which a Presentation will be made to each one of them. Those seven notable Stalwarts of Irish Republicanism are :
Peig and Paddy King (chosen by Republicans in Leinster), Pádraig Ó Baoighill (Ulster) , Frank Quinn (Connacht) , Liam Cotter (Munster) , Don Hurley (USA) and Michael Kennedy (Galway and London) .
This blog extends warmest ‘Congrats!’ to those Honorees , and we hope to have a representative present on the night to record proceedings. Well Done to ye all – Ni Seoinini Sinn Go Leir !

Thanks!
