    BBC News - Hundreds attend Enniskillen Poppy Day bomb services


    As a footnote, something that is sometimes forgotten is the far larger bomb that failed to explode in Tullyhommon at the same time which targeted a parade of mainly Girls and Boys Brigade members.

  2. I was, and remain, deeply impressed that Remembrance Services continued uninterrupted in all the border towns despite the awful news coming in from Enniskillen.

  4. Can't we have an enquiry, costing millions, you know, like 'Bloody Sunday'? Nah, thought not.

  5. Wasn't someone arrested a few days back in connection to Enniskillen? I'm sure I read it in one of the papers.

  6. Just ask Marty and I`m sure the peace loving ex terrorist will be more than glad to cough up the names.
     
  7. Ask again, but add with a cheeky wink "or Canary Wharf might go into orbit".
     
  8. Thread resurrection. Thirty years today and I’m watching news reports of this atrocity.
    Those modern day apologists to terrorism should never be allowed to forget or airbrush this type of activity, carried out in the name of so called freedom.
    I was in the Province at the time and the sheer brutality of this attack still brings a shiver to the spine.
    I expect there will be no comment from Jeremy or his Shadow Chancellor today and even if there was, I’d treat it with the contempt it deserves.

  9. I’m sure Corbyn will try to say that they were ‘misunderstood’
     
  10. Or they've changed their hairstyle since then, so their previous habit of killing innocent people for S&G's is all in the past

  11. The memorial they unveiled yesterday had to be taken away again straight after the service. The Church hasn't decided if they are going to allow it on their property. It's a shame they weren't this worked up about who was putting what on their property in 1987.

    Enniskillen memorial uncertainty 'hurtful'

    That’s a new one on me, blaming the bomb site.
     
  13. The Reading Rooms were the only building in the area that wasn't searched before the parade. The agreement was that the Church would check them and report anything suspicious. They didn't.

    The responsibility for the bomb attack lies squarely with those who planted it. And would a church worker know what a bomb looked like?
