New memorial set to honour Enniskillen bombing victims

 
 
RELATIVES of those killed in the Enniskillen Remembrance Day Bomb will gather at the scene tomorrow morning (Wednesday) for the unveiling of a new memorial to the 12 victims on what will be the 30th anniversary of their deaths. 
Hundreds are expected to gather at the war memorial for the event, including a large number of dignitaries and family members of the bereaved and injured as well as those who assisted in the rescue effort. 
 
Due to the memorial events, business owners and residents in Enniskillen are being warned of road closures and parking arrangements. 
Sections of Belmore Street, East Bridge Street and Queen Elizabeth Road will be closed to facilitate the unveiling. 
Tonight (Tuesday) at 6pm, the slip road from Queen Elizabeth Road to Belmore Street will close to traffic in order to erect the staging and memorial. This slip road will remain closed until 12.30pm Wednesday lunchtime. 
From 9.10am tomorrow, Belmore Street, East Bridge Street and Queen Elizabeth Road will be closed to traffic as arranged by the PSNI and will remain closed until around 1pm. Business owners and residents of Belmore Street who normally park outside their premises can use the Clinton Centre carpark at the back, until the unveiling and dedication service is completed. 
Barriers will be put in place around the war memorial and on the double yellow lines on the road. All roads will be re-opened by 1.30pm. 
The unveiling service will begin at 10.30 and conclude at 11:15 and this will be followed by a Service of Remembrance in Enniskillen Presbyterian Church at 11:30am.

Belmore Street in Enniskillen was closed during the incident as emergency services flocked to the scene.

Belmore Street was closed off and specially trained police negotiators were called in to deal with the situation last...

Meanwhile the outgoing council chairman came under fire again over his refusal to condemn the 1987 Enniskillen bomb.
