Carmencita Hederman, 1987

In November 1987 eleven people were killed when an IRA bomb exploded during a Remembrance Day Service in Enniskillen

Carmencita Hederman, who was Lord Mayor in 1987, remembers: “When a Book of Condolences was opened in the Mansion House, we kept having to run back down to Eason’s to buy new books because so many people turned up. At a memorial service in Enniskillen, I presented the book on behalf of the people of Dublin.” This photograph was taken during that service – note the presence of one Charles J Haughey.

With thanks to Carmencita Hederman
