Alan McBride: 'I was very fortunate to be married to two incredible women. One was cruelly taken from me, the other I threw away'
The co-ordinator of the Wave Trauma Centre in Belfast has been engaged in peace-building for the past 30 years. Alan was working as a butcher on the Shankill Road when his wife, Sharon, and father-in-law Desmond Frizzell were killed in a bomb attack at the family fish shop in 1993. He lives alone in east Belfast, and has one daughter, Zoe, from his marriage to Sharon. He has a first-class honours degree from Ulster University and an MPhil in reconciliation studies from Trinity College Dublin.
