I am asking everyone of you to PLEASE write, call, fax, email the following key people in the 6 counties and the 26 counties asking them to please use their good office and write a letter to the Northern Ireland Office asking them to issue Gerry McGeough an immediate pardon.

Since the signing of the Good Friday Agreement, Gerry has lived a peaceful and productive life. He is an accomplished Irish speaker and a promoter of Ireland's unique culture and heritage. He put himself through university, graduating from Trinity College, Dublin with an Honors Degree in History in 2003. The following year he attained a Higher Diploma in Education from University College, Dublin and went on to teach history.

Gerry is the former editor of the Hibernian Magazine, for faith and country, President of the Tyrone County Board of the Ancient Order of Hibernians and a devoted husband and father of 4 children from the Brantry area of Tyrone.

In the past two years, Gerry has suffered two heart attacks due the stress of a four year long dragged out politically motivated trial ending with a 'guilty verdict' and a 20 year sentence on April 1, 2011.

Gerry was and still is a supporter of the peace process and this man should be given an immediate pardon and allowed to return to his family. SEND LETTERS, FAXES, EMAILS OR CALL - BUT PLEASE DO IT NOW!

Gerry McGeough Sentenced

April 6, 2011

Gerry was sentenced to 20 years. He will be eligible for release in 2 years on license or parole, however this can be arbitrarily revoked at any time with very little legal safeguard. This is the worst part of the type of sentencing he got... the fact they can pick him up at ANY time for ANY reason they see fit.

Gerry McGeough's Sentencing Postponed

Gerry's sentencing hearing didn't take place today. He had chest pains this morning prior to court. The prison doctor referred him to an external hospital. His attorney is pressuring the prison for further details.

Wednesday, March 16, 2011


Republican Prisoner, Gerry McGeough is due to attend court on Monday March 21st 2011 for sentencing in relation to an attack on a British soldier 30 years ago.

Gerry as a republican will be refusing the degrading and humiliating strip searches he would be expected to go through both going to and returning from court.

Gerry is married with four young children and has an underlying medical condition having suffered 2 heart attacks in the past. Gerry has 5 stents inserted to help alleviate his condition.

It is feared any attempt to forcibly strip Gerry could have life threatening consequences.

Gerry was found guilty on all counts and had his bail revoked and was dragged out of the court. McAnespie was found not guilty and walked. Pictures will follow tomorrow from the court.
