Ernesto Che Guevara Lynch

“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.” Fahan Street, Derry. Launched October 13th, 2007 (An Phoblacht).
