Che Guevara Lynch

2013-06-05 CheGuevaraLynch+
“Che” Guevara’s father, also called Ernesto Guevara Lynch, was an Argentinian descended from Patrick Lynch, who emigrated from Galway (in 1742?) and married in Buenos Aries in 1749. (Based on these rodovid pages: one | two | three.) Che’s father is the source of the quote at the bottom of the mural: “In my son’s veins flowed the blood of Irish rebels.”
The Irish inscription, ‘Thocfadh an réabhlóideach a mharú ach ní an réabhlóid a scríosadh”, means “The revolutionary may die, but the revolution lives on.”
This mural is on Fahan Street in London-/Derry/Doire. Previous ‘windows in walls’: St. Malachy’s | Bingham.
