A plaque has been unveiled in memory of four off-duty soldiers targeted in an IRA car bomb attack in Co Fermanagh.

The ceremony took place yesterday, three days before the 32nd anniversary of the attack.

Robert Huggins and Thomas Agar died instantly in the explosion on May 18, 1984. A third, Peter Gallimore, passed away five months later, while a fourth, Clive Aldridge, suffered life-changing wounds and has since died.

First Minister Arlene Foster and local MP Tom Elliott were among those in Enniskillen. Also present were 14 relatives, a doctor who tended the men, and an ex-fireman who was at the scene.

The event was organised by victims' group the South East Fermanagh Foundation. Kenny Donaldson from it said: "This has been difficult for the families. We pray they leave knowing that very many people in Fermanagh care about them and their welfare."
