Minister of State for North-South Co-operation, Seán Sherlock, TD, is in Derry today marking the 43rd anniversary of Bloody Sunday.

 

Speaking at an event organised by the Bloody Sunday Trust and the Museum of Free Derry, Minister Sherlock stated:

"Bloody Sunday was one of the darkest moments of the Troubles, and left many scars on individuals, families, and the wider community in Derry. A significant moment for all those involved in Bloody Sunday came five years ago, through the apology made by British Prime Minister, David Cameron in the House of Commons.”

"This anniversary is an opportunity to remember those who died 43 years ago. But also it is to mark all those who lost their lives during the Troubles, other victims, and their families."

"Today, 43 years on, we remember them all."

While in the city, Minister Sherlock will also meet with the chamber of commerce to explore opportunities for enhancing economic development across the North West region.

Earlier today, Minister Sherlock accompanied Minister Flanagan at the first implementation meeting on the Stormont House Agreement in Belfast.
