There was standing room only at Truth & Reconciliation Platform event ‘The Bomb and Bullet Legacy’ at Sean Hollywood Arts Centre in Newry on Wednesday, October 10th.
Moving accounts were heard from survivors who had lost family members to the violence of the Troubles including Eugene Reavey, Joe Campbell Alan McBride and Stephen Travers.
The event was organised by local solicitor Rory McShane and the panel also included former Ulster and Ireland rugby star Trevor Ringland who is playing a key role in reconciliation initiatives across the island.
The audience heard some heartbreaking testimonies in the search for truth and justice and heard the call that these families from all backgrounds deserve the truth and the funding released so that the inquests they crave into the deaths of their loved ones can be heard.
