AOH in Belfast


Belfast — Leading members of the Ancient Order of Hibernians in the  U.S. visited the Ballymurphy area of Belfast on Sunday morning,  September 23, to pay their respects to the victims of the Ballymurphy  Massacre and hear firsthand accounts of the shootings.

Upon visiting each of the spots where the eleven victims were killed,  the AOH promised to take what they had learned back home to the Irish  American community.

The representatives were told in great detail how the victims met  their fate at the hands of the British army’s Parachute Regiment during  those three fateful days in August, 1971.
