A hero of the Enniskillen Remembrance Day bomb died from Covid-19 while listening to music from the silver band he performed with on the day of the IRA atrocity.

George Little (80), whose wife Violet (78) also passed away after battling coronavirus, pulled survivors from the rubble of the November 1987 attack, which killed 12 people and injured more than 60.

He was performing with the Ballyreagh Silver Band on the day of the massacre and was listening to the same band when he died alone in hospital.
