Irish militant speaking tonight

November 09, 1990

Bernadette Devlin McAliskey, the fiery civil rights activist from Northern Ireland, will speak in opposition to censorship in Ireland, Britain and the United States at 7:30 p.m. today at St. Peter the Apostle Church Hall, Hollins and Poppleton streets.

McAliskey's two decades of civil rights militancy has earned her six months in County Armagh jail and five years in the British parliament as the youngest member in history.

Now 43, married and the mother of three, McAliskey is touring America in place of Gerry Adams, the president of Sinn Fein, the political voice of Irish Republicanism. The State Department denied Adams a visa.
