According to some of the relatives of those killed 30 years ago today at Teebane the massacre has become one of the ‘lost’ atrocities in the history of the Troubles. For those directly affected there is no escape, and life has never been, and never can be, the same again.

It may have nothing to do with any ‘hierarchy of victims’ as some suggest, but instead could be partly due to the political row which occurred when Secretary of State Peter Brooke sang ‘Oh My Darling, Clementine’ on RTE’s Late Late Show that evening.
