“Miss Maud Gonne and ex-President Kruger Honored with Limerick City Freedom for Defying British Rule”

The Manchester Courier reports that both Miss Maud Gonne and ex-President Kruger have been granted the freedom of Limerick City due to their shared opposition to the British Government, be it in South Africa or Ireland. The correspondent suggests that the qualification for Limerick citizenship is rooted in a common resistance against British rule and support for those challenging it, irrespective of where the struggle takes place. In recognizing their shared goal, Limerick City honors these individuals for their defiance and contribution to the broader fight for independence and self-determination.
