This year is the 40th anniversary of the IRA hunger strike and Sinn Fein are already planning their annual commemoration. They commemorate it every year, but every decade they make a special effort.

The year 2001 was one such year and for the 20th anniversary there was a varied programme of events.

As part of that programme, the 1981 Hunger Strike Commemoration Committee wrote to Newry and Mourne District Council asking councillors to rename the Patrick Street playpark as the Raymond McCreesh Park, in honour of an IRA hunger striker.
