Radio Free Eireann Broadcasting 13 August 2016

Martin Galvin with news of what is on air from Radio Free Eireann this weekend, Saturday, 13th of August.

Radio Free Eireann will present a Special Tw Hour Program Noon-2pm this Saturday.

Last week's interview with Gerry McGeough (read on RFE123.ORG), which was misrepresented by Unionists, made headline news in the north throughout the week. This week's program will begin with an answer and rebuttal.

We will then interview Belfast Republican Francie McGuigan, one of the 1971 internees and "Hooded Men", about why last Sunday's Internment Day March was blocked from the Belfast City Centre, and why nationalists are still marching against Internment in the six counties.

Derry Journal reporter Eamon Sweeney will talk about the life of Bishop Edward Daly, especially his support for justice for the Bloody Sunday families and the bitter reaction of British paratroopers to Bishop Daly's passing.

RFE will continue its own pledge drive program offering a special DVD to supporters, A Celebration of the Life of Oglach Liam Ryan.

Liam Ryan, a Tyrone native emigrated to the Bronx, worked for Con Ed, became an American citizen, and was murdered by pro-British loyalists. The DVD includes moving footage and interviews with family and friends from the Bronx and Tyrone and the Independent Republican 25th anniversary Commemoration.

Go to Radio Free Eireann's new web site, Rfe123.org  where you can read written transcripts of last weeks headline making interviews with Tyrone Republican Gerry McGeough and Richard O'Rawe's discussion of the movie on Bobby Sands.  

John McDonagh and Martin Galvin co- host. 

Radio Free Eireann is heard Saturdays at 12 Noon New York time on WBAI 99,5 FM and wbai.org 

It can be heard at wbai.org in Ireland from 5pm to 7pm or anytime after the program concludes on wbai.org/archives
