16 July, 2005


Castlebar Town Council backed a motion submitted by Sinn Féin councillor Noel Campbell calling on the Irish government to initiate steps for a full, independent inquiry in to the murder of Cllr. Eddie Fullerton. The motion read as follows:

"That this Council supports the ongoing call from the family of the late Cllr.Eddie Fullerton, member of Buncrana Urban District Council and Donegal County Council, for a full independent public inquiry chaired by a person of international repute in to the circumstances surrounding his murder and furthermore calls on the Irish Government to insist on full cooperation from the British authorities to assist the Fullerton family in their quest for truth and justice."

Speaking after the meeting Councillor Campbell said, "All parties supported the motion which indicates to me the gravity of Councillor Eddie Fullerton's case. With similar motions being passed in councils all over the island, the Fullerton family's demand must now be met." ENDS
