Week of events to mark Bloody Sunday anniversary

By Donna Deeney

Three women, who each lost a family member during the Troubles, will share their experiences during a week of events ahead of the Bloody Sunday Commemoration March.

A woman seduced by an undercover police officer will also relate her story.

Shauna Moreland, whose mother Caroline Moreland was murdered in 1994 by the IRA, under the direction of British state agent ‘Stakeknife’ Freddie Scappaticci, and Janet Donnelly, daughter of Joseph Murphy who was killed in the Ballymurphy massacre and whose  body was recently exhumed in the pursuit of new evidence, will join Kate Nash speaking about the impact left by the death of her brother William on Bloody Sunday. Ms Nash described 2015 as one of the most turbulent for the families of Bloody Sunday in recent years.

A week of events under the banner of ‘Injustice Exposed’ to mark the anniversary of Bloody Sunday gets under way on Monday, January 25 including art exhibitions, films and discussions.

Among the topics will be the plight of a refugee which will take place at the Nerve Centre on January 27. The events will be preceded by a talk at Pilot’s Row in the Bogside where a woman who was in a long relationship with a man she did not know was an undercover policeman will be the guest speaker tomorrow.

A full list of the Bloody Sunday March for Justice events are available at bloodysundaymarch.org
