MEMBERS of the Tim Parry Johnathan Ball Foundation for Peace team travelled to Omagh, County Tyrone at the weekend to show their support for vicitms of the 1998 bombing.
The group joined members of the Omagh Support and Self Help Group at a memorial service for the car bomb attack which was described as ‘Northern Ireland's worst single terrorist atrocity’.
Twenty-nine people died as a result of the attack which was carried out by the Real Irish Republican Army (RIRA), a splinter group of former Provisional Irish Republican Army members opposed to the Good Friday Agreement.
Harriet Vickers, who was13 days old when she was caught in the Warrington bombing and her mother Bronwen later died as a result of her injuries, was also part of the delegation and read a poem which hangs in the Peace Centre.
