Archbishop appeals for information about missing victims of the Troubles

Published 07/01/2007

Fresh appeals have been launched today for information relating to the so-called 'disappeared.'

The remains of nine people, who were killed by the IRA and the INLA during the Troubles, have never been found.

Appeals will be made at Catholic services this morning, following a request from the Independent Commission for the Location of Victim's Remains.

The Primate of All-Ireland, Archbishop Se€n Brady said the families of the disappeared continue to suffer, years after the deaths of their loved ones:

"Each year in Holy Week for the past number of years, the families of the disappeared have been gathering in Armagh," he said.

"It would mean a lot for them if the remains of these victims were located and they could give them a dignified funeral."
