Omagh Council unanimously agree bomb memorial unveiling

9 November, 2006

Sinn Féin Omagh Councillor Sean Clarke has refuted criticisms of Omagh Council made by Michael Gallagher that the council has not taken forward plans for the unveiling of a memorial to the victims of the 1998 Omagh bomb.

Cllr Clarke said:

"Michael Gallagher's claims are simply untrue. Omagh council has unanimously agreed to unveil a memorial stone in 2008, to mark the 10th anniversary of the tragedy and the council has also unanimously agreed the wording of the inscription.

"In fact I believe that the unanimity of the council is also a very powerful message that we remain united in our horror at the bombing and united in our determination to support all of the people who suffered as a result of the atrocity." ENDS
