Subject: Republican POW Mick Kenny RELEASED
Date: Monday, March 29, 2004

The the Irish Freedom Committee is pleased to report to our Members
and supporters that after six years of almost unending harassment,
duplicity, and singularly cruel and abusive treatment at the hands
of the Free State government; Irish Republican POW Mick Kenny has
finally been released from prison, and is now home with his wife and family.

Mick Kenny has written to the Irish Freedom Committee today to thank
our Members and supporters for our lifeline of support from the U.S. to
both he and his wife Roisin over the past few years. He has told us that
our support, "arrived at a vital time, and was vital in maintaining my
morale, and my integrity as a republican political prisoner." He
has also told us that our support at a crucial time helped to rescue him
from the demoralizing isolation and harsh circumstances he was sent
into after being transferred away from Portlaoise; where he had been
viciously assaulted in cover of darkness and put into a coma.

The Irish Freedom Committee wishes to extend our warmest wishes to
both Mick and to Roisin in their new lives together. As our Members and
supporters will be aware, Roisin Kenny has carried out a yeoman-like
battle on behalf of her husband, including an extensive on-line
campaign and internet discussion forum to keep her husband's case in the
public mind.

Please send your congratulations and warm welcomes to Micheál and
Roisin O' Cionnaith, to the "Justice For Mick Kenny" discussion forum
located at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/justiceformickkenny/
