On this day 20 years ago, the Provisional IRA set off a bomb in the Co.Fermanagh town of Enniskillen, killing 11 people and injuring dozens more. The civilians were attending a Remembrance Day ceremony for fallen countrymen who had lost their lives in the two World Wars.

One of the most poignant events to come from that terrible day was the words of Gordon Wilson and his now famous and most compassionate speech “bearing no ill will” against his daughter Maries’ killers.

More about the bombing can be seen here … keep the victims in your thoughts at this time.

PS : If any pro-violence, ‘RA head wants to flame me on the comments, don’t even bother.
