Sceala Irish Craic Forum Discussion:     Britain's Queen Elizabeth & Dublin and Monaghan bombings

13th April 2011

VISIT OF BRITAIN'S QUEEN ELIZABETH II

Justice for the Forgotten believes the extraordinary coincidence of Britain's Queen Elizabeth arriving in Ireland on the 37th anniversary of the Dublin and Monaghan bombings presents her Prime Minister, David Cameron, with a golden opportunity to make a genuinely significant gesture of reconciliation. It should enable him to announce his intention to open the files and make available the documentation that was withheld from Judge Henry Barron during the course of his inquiries into the Dublin and Monaghan bombings and the other cross-Border bombings that were perpetrated in this jurisdiction in the 1970s.

The Dublin and Monaghan bombings, in which 34 men, women and babies were killed, caused the greatest loss of life in a single day during the entire period of the Troubles.

The British authorities not only refused to co-operate with Judge Barron but have also ignored repeated requests from former Taoisigh and especially the all-Party motion that was unanimously adopted by Dáil Éireann in July 2008, which urged them:

'to allow access by an independent, international judicial figure to all original documents held by the British Government relating to the atrocities that occurred in this jurisdiction and which were inquired into by Judge Barron, for the purposes of assessing said documents with the aim of assisting in the resolution of these crimes'.

We remember Prime Minister Cameron's words last June when he apologised for Bloody Sunday. He told the House of Commons:

'It is right to pursue the truth with vigour and thoroughness...openness and frankness about the past, however painful, do not make us weaker, they make us stronger'.

In anticipation of this momentous occasion our plea to Prime Minister Cameron is:

Pursue the truth with vigour - make us all stronger - open up the files

Note to Editors:
We will be meeting with Independent TDs in Leinster House at 9.45 am on Wednesday, 13th April and will be available for comment afterwards - at about 10.30 am.

We will be encouraging the public to attend our dignified wreath-laying ceremony on the anniversary (17th May) at the memorial in Talbot Street but no flags or banners should be displayed.

The Dublin and Monaghan bombings, victims of British terrorists
