21 Apr – Murder of Adrian Lamph in Portadown
THE KILLING OF ADRIAN LAMPH
STATEMENT BY CARDINAL SEÁN BRADY
21 APRIL, 1998
I have visited the Lamph family in Portadown to express to them my sympathy on the murder of Adrian yesterday. The condemnation of this callous deed already expressed by clergy and politicians speaks for all who are appalled at this most recent atrocity.
People continue to confidently hope that the nightmare of violence can be ended once and for all in our country and I believe that this most recent killing was carried out by some misguided and hate-filled opponent of peace and progress.
We must pray that the efforts of such people are overcome by the determination of the many who know that a better way can be achieved for Northern Ireland.
