This thread is about where you were and how you reacted to these world changing events on their anniversaries…
So today is the 20th anniversary of that awful day in Omagh.
Back on this day 20 years ago (Jesus, 20???), I came home from watching a game in the club and walked in on my dear old dad, a staunch republican, defender of the Provisional IRA and Sinn Fein, in floods of tears watching the news unfold and my mother out in the kitchen, unable to watch the news.
I sat on the couch and looked on, slack jawed.
May all those hurt, killed or traumatised, either rest in peace, or have solace in the fact that this act alone, may have been the final nail in the coffin of the war in our country.
