Support for the Rossport 5 at the Hurling All-Ireland

Thanks to all the hurling fans who gave generously to the support fund before the match A huge of amount of suport was expressed for the families of the Rossport Five by supporters of both teams contesting the Hurling All-Ireland final at Croke Park yesterday (Sunday 11th September 2005). Although both sides expressed admiration for the men and their heroic fight against the injustice of being jailed for peacefully protecting their community, most collecters going around the pubs felt that the Galway supporters were more generous. Perhaps they simply know more about the case in Galway? An enormous amount of money was raised, and over a thousand stickers were given out. This money will support the five men in their fight.

A tired spokesperson for the Dublin Shell to Sea group said-''Thanks to all the people who gave up their weekend to help with the collection and postering, and thanks of course to everyone who donated money towards the cause. We'll be back for the Football Final!''
