Earlier today we gathered at the memorial in Talbot Street to remember the families of the 33 civilians and one unborn child who died in the Dublin Monaghan bombings on 17th May 1974. The ceremony marked the 43rd anniversary of the bombings by the UVF which killed 34 people in what was the worst loss of life during the Troubles.

The Commission of Inquiry into the bombings under Mr Justice Henry Barron described the attacks as ‘acts of international terrorism that were colluded in by the British security forces’.

I continue to support and commend the tireless efforts of the Justice for the Forgotten who continue to campaign for full disclosure by the British government.
