A group of prominent Irish-Americans has called for a boycott of “Irish Lives Matter” t-shirts that are being sold in the US.
More than 60 leaders from Irish-America’s civil, political and educational community have signed a letter mourning the passing of US Congressman and civil rights leader John Lewis, who died earlier this month at the age of 80.
