Diocese welcomes bomb memorial resolution

Diocese welcomes bomb memorial resolution The Enniskillen memorial

St Michael’s Diocesan Trust has welcomed the resolution of a disagreement about the siting of a memorial to the 1987 Enniskillen bombing. Twelve people were killed and 68 others were injured in the Rememberance Day bombing by the IRA in the Co. Fermanagh town.

A memorial was unveiled at an event marking 30 years since the attack. However, it was taken down and put into storage after the Diocese of Clogher, which owns the land it was on, revealed it had not been consulted by the council.

The groups involved have now agreed to place it within the gable wall of the Clinton Centre in the town.

In a statement, St Michael’s Diocesan Trust said: “We welcome the good progress that has been made and the solution that has been reached by all parties with regard to the siting of the memorial for the Enniskillen Remembrance Day bomb.

“The events in Enniskillen on Remembrance Sunday in 1987 must be suitably remembered. We look forward to the parties concluding the work regarding outstanding technical matters as soon as possible,” the statement added.
