A memorial plaque to journalist James Bourchier has been unveiled in his native town of Bruff, County Limerick, Ireland. The monument was placed on the initiative of the Bulgarian Embassy in Dublin. The black granite plaque with Bourchier's image is located on the façade of the Post Office in Bruff. The bilingual inscription tells about the work of the journalist.
The opening ceremony took place with speeches by the Ambassador of Bulgaria to Ireland Gergana Karadjova, Geoffrey Keating, the first Ambassador of Ireland accredited to Bulgaria, and Pat Heyes, Chairman of the Bruff Heritage Group.
Ambassador Karadjova pointed out that the new memorial for Bourchier in Ireland was yet another token of the excellent Bulgarian-Irish relations. She singled out the contribution to the development of the project by the authors of monographs on Bourchier - Petko Mangachev and Martin O'Brian and outlined his life path related to Bulgaria, his merits and his place in the collective memory of Bulgarians as a true friend of our country and the Bulgarian people, who won the gratitude and recognition of the Bulgarians with his reports and positions on the national issue in a critical historical moment.
