On Thursday 27 November, the Galway Palestine Solidarity Campaign will
hold a talk on the boycott of Israeli goods by business owners and

at 7pm. The meeting will be addressed by John Griffin and Frank
Naughton, two members of the community in Kinvara who helped organise

toolboxes, as well as Israeli-made toys. Modelled after the boycotts
of apartheid South Africa in the 1960s onwards, it makes Kinvara the
first town or village in Ireland to collectively endorse an Israeli
