Five prisoner Micheál Ni Sheighin, NUI Galway Law Lecturer
Donnacha O’Connell and Dr Mark Garavan, Spokesperson for the
Rossport Five, spoke at the meeting.
The group has so far collected 16,000 signatures alone in Galway
alone supporting the men’s cause. It has planned a major rally
to take place in Dublin on 1 October and has called on all
supporters to march from the Garden of Remembrance to the Dáil.
Ms Ní Sheighin said her father and the four other men are
finding life in Cloverhill Prison difficult but the hundreds of
letters of support that they get each week gives them the
strength to carry on.
