Green Party Councillors Aine Groogan & Anthony Flynn attended the 50th anniversary of the bloody Friday bombings, which included a memorial service at Belfast city hall.

Cllr Aine Groogan said “We are here to pay tribute to the victims and families of those impacted by the Bloody Friday atrocity, it is important that we remember our past and those we have lost and work towards a peaceful future for all of our people.”

The event remembers lives tragically lost when a series of IRA bombs exploded in the city centre, causing 9 deaths and 130 injuries.

Cllr Anthony Flynn concluded “Belfast is in a much different place now than it was on that dark day in 1972, we have come so far and yet events of today remind us how far we still have to go to ensure victims & survivors get the justice that they deserve.”
