Dublin-Monaghan: time for a real inquiry
Dublin-Monaghan: time for a real inquiry
Those affected by the Dublin/Monaghan bombings gathered in Dublin city yesterday to mark the 31st anniversary of the attacks which claimed 34 lives.

The Justice for the Forgotten Group, which represents most of the survivors and victims, has called for the 26-County government to take the British government to the European Court of Human Rights over its failure to establish an inquiry into the bombings.

Meanwhile, a separate group of families bereaved by the bombings intends bringing a High Court case in Dublin to press the case for a full public inquiry.

The following account of the story behind the Dublin and Monaghan bombings and the case for a public inquiry was presented at last year’s European Social Forum by Bernie McNally and Margaret Urwin.
