On May 17th 2011, it was the 37th anniversary of the 1974 dublin and Monaghan bombings, the single biggest loss of life during the 'troubles'.

Justice for the Forgotten (JFF), the organisation of Victims and Relatives seeking justice for the dublin and Monaghan bombings of 17th May 1974; the dublin bombings of 1st December 1972 - 20th January 1973 and other cross-border bombings of the 1970s held a wreath-laying ceremony at the Talbot Street Memorial.
Around 300 people attended the event.

This event was a timely reminder that there are still unanswered questions. The ball is now in the court of the British government. It is more than time for them to own up.

Dublin Sinn Féin activists unveil a banner at the Sinn Féin bookshop in Parnell Square calling on the British Government, during the visit to Ireland by Elizabeth Windsor, to release all the documentation it has in relation to the Dublin and Monaghan bombings of 1974. It is widely believed that British security forces assisted the loyalists who carried out the bombings leaving 34 people dead and hundreds injured.

The Sinn Féin Dáil team have today published a Private Members’ motion on the Dublin-Monaghan bombings which will be debated in the Dáil next Tuesday and Wednesday.

The motion reiterates a previous all-party motion which was passed in July 2008 and calls on the Government to press British Prime Minister David Cameron to release all files related to the bombings.
