British Government must release files on Dublin and Monaghan bombings - Adams

17 May, 2016 - by Gerry Adams TD


This morning, on the 42nd anniversary of the Dublin and Monaghan bombings, Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams TD has extended his continued sympathy and solidarity to the survivors and the bereaved of May 17th, 1974.

Teachta Adams said:

“I want to extend my continued sympathy to the survivors and loved ones of the victims of the Dublin and Monaghan bombings forty-two years ago today, which resulted in the highest number of deaths and casualties during the course of the conflict.

“I also want to commend the continued work of the ‘Justice for the Forgotten’ group and the vital support they give to the victims and families.

“I would again call on the British Government to release all information it holds associated with the bombings, and to assist the families in ensuring that justice is pursued and delivered.

“The new Programme for Government contains a commitment to pursue the implementation of Dáil motions relating to the 1974 Dublin and Monaghan bombings, and it is vital that the new Government lives up to the need to ensure the upmost pressure is put on the British administration to release their files.”
