Daughter of Cuban revolutionary icon Che Guevara plans to trace her Irish roots
Doctor Guevara March is a guest of the Galway Trades Council at the All Ireland Senior Hurling Final in Croke Park on Sunday
The link between Ireland and Cuban revolutionaries seems to be growing. In a visit that seems certain to grate on conservative leaders in the US, it has been reported that Che Guevara's daughter will visit a Dublin hospital during a week-long trip to Ireland.
According to the Evening Herald, Guevara's daughter, Doctor Aleida Guevara March, is currently visiting Ireland with Che's wife, Aleida March.
Doctor Guevara March is a pediatrician who works at the William Solder Paediatric Hospital in Havana. Yesterday she visited the Irish national parliament at Leinster House for a meeting with Irish ministers and senators.
Whilst in Ireland, Guevara March will reportedly promote the English version of the book “Remembering Che: My Life With Che Guevara,” written by her mother.
Doctor Guevara March will also be guest of the Galway Trades Council at the All Ireland Senior Hurling Final in Croke Park on Sunday.
Next Monday she is scheduled to attend an event sponsored by the trade union Unite where she will be a guest of the Irish Trade Unions Cuba Solidarity Committee.
Then at 8 P.M. she will speak in Liberty Hall for the launch of her mother's book.
Che Guevara, the Argentinian born Cuban revolutionary icon who was also known as Ernesto Guevara Lynch, was killed leading a campaign in Bolivia in 1965. The Guevara Lynch family background is rooted in Galway.

It certainly is discrimination. If one is open to serve the public, that means serving EVERYONE and with courtesy. @ Mr. O'Doherty, I find it hypocrFamilies as well as Catholic Church and government to blame for illegal adoptions
