Loughinisland families take fight to Dublin

No Stone Unturned tells the story of the sectarian attack on the Heights Bar in Loughinisland.

FAMILIES of the victims of the Loughinisland massacre have travelled to Dublin for a screening of the critically acclaimed documentary No Stone Unturned in Leinster House.

Sinn Féin South Down MP Chris Hazzard accompanied the families to last night's special showing of the documentary by award winning film maker Alex Gibney.

He said the viewing was "an important opportunity to bring the film and its message to community and political figures in Dublin".

The film tells the story of the 1994 loyalist attack on The Heights Bar that left six men dead. It also names suspects believed to be involved in the shooting but never convicted.

"Raising the profile of the rampant and systemic collusion in the Loughinisland Massacre has had a real impact on citizens across the island, but this is sadly not the only such story to tell," said Mr Hazzard.

"Over 40 years on and some families are still waiting for their right to truth and justice about the murder of their loved ones to be respected. The injustice of collusion is as relevant as ever.

"As MP for South Down, I will continue to campaign alongside the Loughinisland families in their search for justice for the murder of their loved ones by British state proxies," he added.
