What’s on Locally…
Children of the Troubles is a project by Joe Duffy and Freya McClements. They are writing a book to remember the children who died as a result of Northern Ireland’s ‘Troubles’. They wish to accurately and sensitively record the lives of these children, who died so young. If your family or friends lost a child – aged 16 and under – and you would like to contribute to the book, please contact Joe or Freya on 07743589203 or e-mail – firstname.lastname@example.org’.
