From a Correspondent
Irish London served Ireland as well in the present century as Irish America served the Motherland in the last century, said Mr. Aodh de Blacam, speaking at the inaugural meeting of the Gaelic League of London on Saturday evening, when he recalled the men and women whom he knew in London 25 years ago and who, he said, had left their mark on Irish history.
In the great task still before the nation, the unification of Ireland, the Irish in London might play a great part. In their ranks at all times men of all breeds and creeds had walked together, rejoicing to give their best to their people.
No London Irishman needed to be told, what too few people at home in a sectionridden country realised, that Ireland without the historic six counties was a travesty of the nation that had been envisaged by the men who lived and died for the cause.
