‘Letters from Long Kesh’ is a series of letters written by Des O'Hagan, a longtime leading member of the Workers' Party, between 1971 and 1972 while he was an internee at Long Kesh internment camp in the North of Ireland. The letters were published in the Irish Times at the time and were republished in book form in 2012 by Citizen Press.

This event is hosted by the National Commemoration Committee to mark the 50th Anniversary of Internment.

Is sraith litreacha iad ‘Letters from Long Kesh’ arna scríobh idir 1971 agus 1972 ag Des O'Hagan, príomhbhall de Pháirtí na nOibrithe le tamall fada, agus é ina imtheorannaí i gcampa imtheorannaithe na Ceise Fada i dtuaisceart na hÉireann.

Foilsíodh na litreacha san Irish Times ag an am agus d’athfhoilsigh Citizen Press iad mar leabhar in 2012. Beidh an Coiste Náisiúnta Comórthaí ag óstáil an imeachta seo leis an 50ú bliain d’Imtheorannú a chomóradh.
