Kenny meeting Ballymurphy familes
27 Mar 2015 07:07
Taoiseach Enda Kenny will visit Ballymurphy in west Belfast this morning where he will meet the relatives of 11 civilians shot dead by British soldiers in 1971.
-
The relatives of those killed say they have never received full disclosure or proper justice.
-
They are campaigning for an independent review, similar to that following the Hillsborough Disaster.
-
The 'Ballymurphy Massacre' took place following the introduction of internment without trial on 9 August 1971 when the RUC, backed up by British soldiers, began raiding homes in nationalist areas of Belfast.
-
Eleven people, including local priest Fr Hugh Mullan and mother-of-eight Joan Connolly, were killed.
-
Mr Kenny will meet relatives later this morning, a day after he met with relatives of the ten Protestant workers killed by the IRA at Kingsmills in 1976.
