Vol. Denis Spriggs commemoration 2017
The Cork 32 County Sovereignty Movement held its annual Vol. Denis Spriggs commemoration this year which was attended by some of Denis Spriggs family members who came from the USA. The commemoration was a great success and was a fitting tribute to the young volunteer who was taken from his home and then butchered by British forces in 1921.
As always the commemoration was watched closely by the Southern Irish governments political police force known as the 'Special branch'. We will never allow the intimidation tactics of unaccountable malcontents to stop us in remembering our patriot dead.
