Colm Murphy and Seamus Daly were retried after they and two others were held liable in civil action. Cole and Seamus were two people alleged who were key figures in the plot. No one was ever prosecuted in the criminal courts for the bombing. Cole Murphy, Seamus Daly, and two others- Michael Mckevitt and Liam Campbell- were held responsible and ordered to pay £1.6m in damages.

This was a really good article, especially for the pictures. The photos showed how many people the bombing affected, 29 may not seem like a big number but the impact it had towards the community of Omagh couldn't be any bigger. The photo that caught my eye the most was the one with a huge crowd of people on the streets of Omagh, 29 people killed and 220 injured and yet there was a crowd of what looks to be thousands even tens of thousands showing there respect. This also showed how the community of Omagh stuck together and helped each other through a time of conflict.

It's nice to have an insight on what UK politicians have to say about the bombings and have a complete victims list. Good read

This article provides the names of the people who died and quotes from important leaders presenting their reactions to this horrible act of destruction. I believe this article gives us important information, as it gives us a visual understanding of who were the victims who died and also shows it's impact to important leaders around Ireland instead of from loved ones, which is already provided to us.
