Subject: I-AUC Resolution to An Taoiseach

>In recent months Ned McGinley, when National President
>of the AOH, in the US, after speaking at length with
>the widow of Capt. Jim Kelly, previously requested by
>Civil Rights veterans in Derry, he wrote to An Taoiseach,
>Bertie Ahern TD. He requested that An Taoiseach personally
>intervene.

In July a son of Capt. Kelly, Justin, spoke
>at the AOH's National Convention. Media reports
>estimated that at least 1,400 delegates attended.
>
>The October 5th Assoc.-a non-party network of 1968
>civil rights veterans and supporters-greatly welcome
>the fact that the Irish American Unity Conference has
>taken a similar stance, and has written to Taoiseach
>Ahern. The text follows, and can be printed out from
>the campaign website: www.captainkely.org

>RESOLUTION
>
>Whereas Captain James Kelly faithfully served the
>nation of Ireland for
>more that two decades; and

>Whereas Captain James Kelly was a decorated officer in
>Ireland’s armed
>forces; and
>Whereas Captain James Kelly was following orders when
>he went to the six
>occupied counties of Ireland; and
>Whereas Captain James Kelly’s arms trial was
>manipulated by
>withholding evidence during the trial: and
>Whereas the “Not Guilty” verdict of Captain James
>Kelly, and others, was
>besmirched by an unsubstantiated jury tampering
>allegation;
>Now therefore be it
>Resolved that ----
>The National Board of the Irish American Unity
>Conference has, in
>executive session, unanimously passed this resolution
>calling on the
>Taoiseach to completely clear the name of Captain
>Kelly and that it be
>done without further delay. This action will help to
>close a very sad
>chapter in the conflict that has been referred to as
>“The Troubles” for
>more than thirty years and is an important step on the
>road to total
>reconciliation.

>Respectfully submitted,
>Robert C. Linnon, Ph.D.
>National President
