Glencree recently hosted many of the relatives of those killed in the Birmingham Pub Bombings in 1974. They spent three days in both private dialogues as well as public events, including a dinner hosted by President Michael D Higgins. Other meetings included, the Tánaiste and Minister for Foreign Affairs Simon Coveney TD, the British Ambassador to Ireland Sir Robin Barnett, the Lord Mayor of Dublin Cllr Paul McAuliffe as well as Former Taoiseach Bertie Ahern. The Families also held meetings in Leinster House with members of the Good Friday Implementation Committee. Glencree wishes to thank all those who took part in the events over the three days and in particular to the Families who travelled over from Birmingham to be with us in the dialogue sessions.
