“We have received numerous enquiries about the availability of the book and therefore we have decided to proceed with those plans in confidence that it would be Dale’s wish that we do so.
“We will announce an Official launch with guest speakers at a later date in dedication to Dale’s contribution in the compilation of the book.
“In the meantime the publication will be available at all of the Sinn Féin Offices, Tourist Office, Checkpoint Charlie and at Museum of Free Derry priced at £6 with all proceeds going to Derry Republican Graves Association.”
