Seanna Breathnach

…de la Irish Independent:

The former Republican prisoner who became the "face of the IRA" in 2005 has been appointed to a State board.

Seanna Walsh was broadcast around the world when he appeared in a video paying tribute to volunteers, while announcing that paramilitary arms had been put beyond use.

Now he has been appointed to the board of Foras na Gaeilge, the Irish language body, following a meeting of the North-South Ministerial Council attended by Foreign Affairs Minister Dermot Ahern…

… In a news release of names appointed to various cross-border boards, Mr Walsh was rendered as " Seanna Breathnach," using the Irish language version of his surname.
