Former Taoiseach unveils plaque honouring Jadotville commandant

https://www.rte.ie/news/ireland/2017/10 ... que-kenny/


The late Colonel Pat Quinlan from Caherdaniel, Co Kerry, was Commandant of 'A' Company, 35th Infantry Battalion, in September 1961 when he and his men came under attack from 3,500 mercenaries and rebels at Jadotville in the state of Kantanga in the Congo.

The Irish company, comprising 158 soldiers, was part of a UN peacekeeping force in the country. The company suffered no fatalities and inflicted heavy losses on their attackers before being forced to surrender when supplied ran out after five days.

// At the time -and for years thereafter - these soldiers were left in the lurch by their government and the UN.

ImageNew Exhibit on Fred Trump’s Demolition of Coney Island Steeplechase Pavilion Opens May 28


https://untappedcities.com/2016/05/24/n ... ns-may-28/

"Fred Trump had a long lasting effect on Coney Island that goes way beyond the loss of the Pavilion. His racist tenant relocation tactics at the Trump Village development site destroyed the lives of many poor families who were moved to the dilapidated bungalows of Coney’s West End community. None of Trump’s Coney Island projects were without scandal or controversy. This exhibit covers them all.”
