Bobby Sands

If you are like me, you have been waiting for the biography of Bobby Sands for a long, long time. I am going to put the pics of Bobby up from Nothing But an Unfinished Song because I'm sure many have never seen Bobby outside of the famous photographs that have circulated throughout the world in the almost 25 years since his death. I only wish there were more to post.

In response to an article headlined 'New Book is First Study of Bobby Sands', which appeared in a recent edition of the Andersonstown News, I wish to put the record straight.

According to the article, the author of the book, Denis O'Hearn, "thanks the hunger striker's sister Marcella for her help with the book." This suggests that I had "helped" or participated in some way in the compilation of this book and, therefore, endorsed it. This is misleading and untrue.

I wish to state categorically that neither I, nor any of my family, helped Mr O'Hearn with his book in any way, nor does my family endorse the book. Indeed, the opposite would be the case as his book contains numerous factual inaccuracies.
