CRAIGAVON Trades Council are holding their annual Jim Haughey memorial lecture on Monday, November 19.

This year’s speaker is well-known author Dr Conor McCabe who will be speaking on the topic, ‘Fat Cat Finance, Europe, UK and You’.

The lecture is named after Lurgan man Jim Haughey, who fought with the International Brigades during the Spanish Civil War. Mr Haughey was incarcerated in one of General Franco’s concentration camps after the Battle of Ebro. He later volunteered for the Canadian Air Force, and was killed in a plane crash on September 12, 1943. His name is engraved on Canada’s World War Two Book of Remembrance. The annual lecture is a lasting tribute to him.
