Liam Kelly, Republican, 1920 – 2011 June 9, 2011Posted by WorldbyStorm in Irish Politics, Northern Ireland, Sinn Féin, The Left.
Just heard that Liam Kelly, Irish Republican, died this week.
Kelly had a remarkable life as a member of the IRA in the 1940s, a founder of Saor Uladh in the early 1950s, an elected abstentionist MP to Stormont and a Senator in Seanad Éireann.
You can read more about his life here. It appears that in the 1960s and 1970s he was more closely associated with the Republican Clubs, becoming chair of the organisation in the United States.
A tribute from Sinn Féin can be found here.
