Omagh Remembered

It is ten years to the day since the bombing of Omagh. The narrow street containing a former coffee shop this commentator used to frequent, a car accessory/model shop with that distinctive smell of epoxy resin glue, a clothes shop owned by a family whose sons he went to school with and Nichol and Shiels where his mother used to buy all our towels and duvet covers – all destroyed along with 31 lives.

The injured and the relatives still struggle to come to terms with the attack and as yet nobody has been convicted in relation to the bombing. This week the Chief Constable, Hugh Order admitted in was highly unlikely that anyone ever would be.
