Omagh bombing memorial service

A SerVICe will be held this month to mark the 15th anniversary of the Omagh bombing.

The Omagh Support and Self Help Group, which was founded in the aftermath of the bombing, will honour and remember the victims, survivors and the wider community during the service.

The 1998 attack in the Co Tyrone town, which killed 29 people including a woman pregnant with twins, was carried out by the real IrA. The inter-denominational service, which will feature prayer, poetry and music, will be held in the memorial Garden of Light on August 11 at 3pm.

The group will display hand-painted stars in the Garden of remembrance for the anniversary service to support the 'Stars of Hope' disaster relief and community art project.

Afterwards many of the stars will be transported to New York for distribution across the world.
