Mairin Keegan Socialist, Republican and Feminist, the message on her headstone is as relevant now as when it was erected.

Mairin Keegan 1932-72 Socialist, Republican and Feminist.

“In memory of the revolutionary socialist Maureen Keegan republican and feminist and founding member of the Fourth International in Ireland. In this the centenary year of the Russian Revolution we are publishing this photograph to remind people of the message on it. The message is as relevant now as when this grave stone was erected at the time of Mairin’s death in 1972″ Rayner O’Connor Lysaght.

No honest person, if intelligent, and no intelligent person, if honest. Will consider that anything given to the Socialist movement is a sacrifice. It is no sacrifice at all to invest our all time, wealth, knowledge; and all else so as to leave our children the estate of the socialist or co operative commonwealth. Daniel De Leon.
