ILMI online memorial to James Brosnan, Dr. John Roche and Hubert McCormack
April 5th, 2022
We wish to share an invitation from Independent Living Movement Ireland to disabled people.
As Long As We Remember, They Live With Us: Wednesday 6th April 7:30pm
A Memorial to James Brosnan, Dr. John Roche and Hubert McCormack
In a relatively short space of time, the Independent Living Movement has lost three members, mentors, comrades, and friends. Many of us have not had a chance to connect with each other to share out stories of them, to remember them and to collectively ensure that we keep their memories alight as part of the Movement.
Remembering the words of our friend the late Hubert McCormack “We must never forget the battles they fought; we must always ensure that what they fought for will remain intact and progress; We must never forget the sacrifices they made; We must never take for granted the services that we enjoy today; We must keep our fallen friends’ dreams and aspirations for the future alive and we must continue in their footsteps and remain focused to ensure that disabled people with in this country and elsewhere, can live a life equal to that of our non-disabled counterparts”.
On the evening of April 6th, we invite disabled people to an online gathering as we remember those we worked alongside, planned and campaigned with, laughed with, sang and socialised with over the decades. It will be a chance to remember them for those who knew them well and a time to learn about their lives for those who didn’t but want to connect to the history of the Irish Independent Living Movement.
This is a zoom event and registration is essential. To register, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
