THE OMAGH BOMBING
STATEMENT BY CARDINAL SEÁN BRADY
ARCHBISHOP OF ARMAGH
15th August 1998
I am appalled, shocked and deeply saddened by this dreadful atrocity which has killed and maimed so many innocent people. I pray that God may comfort the families and relatives of those who have died. I offer to them and to the injured my deepest sympathy. Those who carried out this terrible act of murder have done so with a ruthless determination to wreck the prospects for peace. They must not be allowed to succeed.
