    The Brighton Bombing

     

    It’s been 30 years since the IRA attempted to Kill British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and her cabinet by bombing the Brighton Hotel in which they were staying for the Tory Party Conference.

    The Aftermath, The Grand Hotel, 1984.

    In 1984, The Daily Telegraph called it “the most audacious attack on a British Government since the Gunpowder Plot”.

    It is seen as a turning point in The Troubles and Miriam spoke to two guests who have been directly affected by the bombings.
