Subject: Obit: Patrick Galvin
Hi All

Sad to be the bearer of this sad news but Patrick Galvin, the Irish playwright, writer and poet, has died at the age of 83, at his home in Cork.

I'll always remember him as the composer of my personal favourite song 'Where, Oh Where, is our James Connolly?'. When I sing this song at the annual Labour Party and SIPTU commeration of James Connolly at Arbour Hill Cemetery next Sunday, I will dedicate the performance to Patrick Galvin's memory.
