Bomb and Bullet Legacy
21st Nov – Renehan Hall
The Truth and Reconciliation Platform (TaRP) brings the "Bomb and Bullet Legacy" talk which will take place on November 21 in Renehan Hall. The Chairman of TaRP, Stephen Travers, said "Truth and Reconciliation Platform was established to give victims, regardless of their political, religious or cultural background, an opportunity to speak for themselves; to tell their own story - in their own words - so that the terrible consequences of political violence will never be forgotten and the mistakes of the past will never be repeated."
Various Irish speakers will present during the Truth and Reconciliation Platform, which will be chaired by Seamus Mallon.
