Sinn Féin Seanadóir Niall Ó Donnghaile said the resilience shown by the Ballymurphy families will lead them towards truth and justice. 

The East Belfast Seanadóir was speaking after hosting a cross-party Seanad delegation at Laganside Court this morning. 

Niall Ó Donnghaile said:

“A cross-party delegation of Seanadóirí attended Laganside Court this morning to observe proceedings at the Ballymurphy inquest. 

“They also gathered to show support and solidarity with the families and with their campaign for truth and justice for their loved ones. 

“This is a significant event in what is a difficult and trying time for the families, but certainly with the resilience they have shown through the years, they will see their way towards truth and justice. 

“It’s important that people across Ireland know the story of what happened at Ballymurphy in August 1971 and understand the narrative of concealments which has existed for over 47 years.

“Sinn Féin will continue to support the Ballymurphy families and as members of Seanad Éireann use whatever methods we can to make sure their story is told.”
