Crowe - It's time for the truth about the Dublin Monaghan bombings

17 May, 2003


Dublin Sinn Féin TD Seán Crowe today backed calls from the families of those bereaved and injured in the May 1974 Dublin/Monaghan bombings, for the truth of what happened 29 years ago. He said 'it is deplorable that the British government are continuing to obstruct the Barron inquiry' and called for 'an end to what is one of the biggest cover-ups in the past 30 years of conflict.'

Deputy Crowe said:

"Twenty nine years ago today, 33 people were killed in Dublin and Monaghan as a result of collusion between British Intelligence and unionist paramilitaries. Twenty nine years on the families of those killed are still searching for the truth and it is time that the British government ended its policy of obstruction and secrecy and co-operated with the Barron Inquiry into the Dublin Monaghan bombings.

"The relatives and friends of the victims of the Dublin/Monaghan bombings are entitled to know the truth about who and why their loved ones were killed. It is time to bring an end to what is one of the biggest cover-ups in the past 30 years of conflict. It is time for the truth."ENDS
