John de Courcy Ireland: A Life Well-Lived

It is very sad to read of the death of John de Courcy Ireland, a tireless campaigner for peace, human rights and socialism.
He was a great friend of Yugoslavia and a strong opponent of the illegal aggression against both Yugoslavia and Iraq. Here is the Daily Telegraph obituary of a remarkable man and tributes from the Irish Socialist Workers Party and The Taoiseach.
