Omagh bombing victims remembered

Omagh bombing victims remembered memorial garden in the Co.-Tyrone

A remembrance service was held last Sunday for those who died in the Omagh bombing 19 years ago.

The prayer service took place in a memorial garden in the Co. Tyrone town to remember the 29 people, including a woman pregnant with twins, who were killed in the Real IRA attack on August 15, 1998.

Bereaved families have recently issued a writ to sue PSNI chief constable George Hamilton for failings in the police investigation that they believe allowed the killers to escape justice. Although a landmark civil trial found four republicans liable for the bombing no-one has ever been convicted in a criminal court of the murders.

The PSNI has said it will “respond in due course” to the legal challenge.
