Manus O’Riordan, Ireland Secretary of the International Brigade Memorial Trust, writes to let us know that the Irish language TV channel TG4 has placed temporarily back online the song “Roll Away the Stone” [“Homage to Jim Larkin”] which he sang on May Day 2009 at the funeral of Jack James Larkin Jones, President of the International Brigade Memorial Trust.

Irish International Brigaders had fought under the banner of James Connolly.  See also from the 10th minute of this link – a TG4 documentary, in which Manus speaks of Connolly’s own internationalism in the USA. (More here, in pdf.)  See this link for the full TG4 series on 1916 leaders.
