‘Tell Them Everything’, a new book by Margaretta D’Arcy will be launched next week as part of the Colours Fringe Festival.
It will be launched in The Women’s Pop Up Playhouse at 10 St Bridget’s Place, Lower Woodquay in Galway City on Monday 26 June at 3pm.
The book will recount D’Arcy’s time spent in Armagh Jail in the 80’s and the stories of the women in Armagh Jail. It will look at how a grassroots women’s group in West Belfast shamed the male dominated Republican movement into acknowledging them.
Sunny Jacobs will launch the book. Sunny is the author of ‘Stolen Times’, about her time condemned to death in the US and when she spent five years on death row before she was freed.
There will also be an exhibition of cards and letters that were sent to Margaretta D’Arcy when she was in jail for being on the runway at Shannon Airport. It will run for a week from Monday 26 June – 3 July at 3pm every day.
