1981 Hunger Strikes Commemorative
Card & E II Penny Coin 
Counterstamped 'IRA'.
The 1981 hunger strikes was one of the most bitter
episodes in the Northern Ireland troubles. It centered on political demands sought by Republicans from Margaret Thatcher's Goverment, which she refused. Other Accounts sugest a more conciliatory response from the British Govt which Gerry Adams refused,  believing that allowing the Hunger Strikes to continue benifited Sinn Fein 
politically. The hunger strikes greatly worsened the political climate & led to many, many more deaths.
Seven IRA &  Three INLA died
