U2 FOREFRONTS JUSTICE CAMPAIGN FOR 1974 MONAGHAN AND DUBLIN BOMBINGS

27 November 2015 No Comments by The Northern Standard

Survivors and bereaved family members of the 1974 bombing attacks in Monaghan and Dublin joined members of the rock band U2 on stage this week during their concerts in the 3 Arena.

The band invited the injured victims and relatives of the 34 people killed in the explosions to their shows and used video images of the bombings and those who lost their lives in accompaniment to their song inspired by the events, Raised by Wolves.

U2 have been highlighting the campaign by Justice for the Forgotten for full disclosure of documents in the possession of the British Government in relation to the bombings throughout their current tour.

Justice for the Forgotten spokesperson Margaret Irwin said she hoped that the attention given to her organisation’s cause by U2’s highlighting of it would persuade the British Government to release the information that surviving victims and relatives had long been seeking in order to achieve closure.
