Cork Republican Publicity Bureau statement in defense of Brendan O’Neill, Jim Lane and Charlie Ronayne.

 

A copy of a statement issued in 1959 by the Cork Republican Publicity Bureau, that was circulated among republicans in defense of Brendan O’Neill, Jim Lane and Charlie Ronayne. After the United Irishman published a statement in March, 1959 that O’Neill, Lane and Ronayne of Cork City were not members of any branch of the Republican Movement. Why should any movement state that three named people were not members of any branch of its movement? they weren’t in the public eye and hadn’t committed some outrage. For the record, O’Neill  and Lane had officially resigned from the Irish Republican Army in Oct, 1958, at the home of Jim O’Regan, the brigade adjutant.
