IRA victims' Dublin rally going ahead, says Willie Frazer

By Victoria Leonard

A rally by IRA victims in the centre of Dublin will be held on October 28, according to campaigner Willie Frazer.

Mr Frazer yesterday led a delegation of victims from south Armagh and representatives of the Kingsmill families to meet senior Garda officers to plan for the event.

The campaigner said the aim of the demonstration was to "highlight the issue of a lack of co-operation from the Irish Government" over the release of documents that could aid the inquest into the 1976 Kingsmill atrocity and lift the lid on other IRA activity.

Earlier this month, Irish Foreign Affairs Minister Simon Coveney said he believed all documents had been handed over to the Coroner's Office and that"no games were being played".

But Mr Frazer has consistently claimed that Dublin has failed to properly engage on legacy issues.
