Ruairi O Bradaigh has died...

Olde schoole provo hardcase - his bio is on wiki
And more recently one of the founders and the president of Republican Sinn Fein. He was one of the main people who created the conditions and the political justification for the Dissident campaign.

I am not seeing his death mentioned on any of the local news sites yet. Are w sure he has actually gone because he has been dying for about 3 years.
