Meeting Regional MP, and Former Speaker of NI Assembly

Today Daniel and I were invited to meet the regional Sinn Féin MP, Elisha McCallion. She congratulated us on the success of our peace walk from Belfast to Derry which has deep symbolic meaning here to the Nationalist or Catholic community.

To the best of her knowledge she believes we are the first two persons known to have made the walk since the 1969 People’s Democracy March. We also met with John Mitchel McLaughlin, former Speaker of the Northern Ireland Assembly and a well known Irish Civil Rights activist.
