Protesters call for release of ‘Guantanamo Granny’


Ms D’Arcy from Galway, was given a three-month suspended sentences by Judge Patrick Durcan at Ennis District Court last December for illegal incursion of the runway at Shannon Airport on October 7, 2012.

Last week, Ms D’Arcy, a Parkinson’s sufferer who is also undergoing treatment for cancer, had the three-month suspended sentence activated after she refused to sign a bond to uphold the law and keep away from unauthorised zones at Shannon.

Peace and human rights organisation Shannonwatch now plan to hold regular weekly demonstrations outside Limerick Prison every Friday at 5pm until such time as the jailed activist is released.
