PRESS RELEASE 5th. August 2005
It is sixty years since the world witnessed the horrors inflicted on the people of Hiroshima when tens of thousands were killed by the atomic bomb. At no time since 1945 has the threat presented by nuclear weapons been more real and alarming than it is today. People in many countries around the world join together every year to commemorate those victims.
The Irish Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament will be holding its Annual Hiroshima Day Commemoration this Saturday, August 6th., at 1.00 p.m. in Merrion Square Park, Dublin at the Hiroshima Memorial Cherry Tree near the western end of Merrion Square (the Leinster House end).
The commemoration will be opened by the Lord Mayor of Dublin, Cllr. Catherine Byrne. Poet Katie Donovan will read some of her poems. Irish children will lay a wreath.
John Goodwillie, Secretary Irish C.N.D., 087-231 1944 / (01) 454 0194
