The Families Walk on the morning of the 50th Anniversary of Bloody Sunday was the most moving spectacle.Done in silent reverence to those murdered and wounded .The little children at the front carrying single roses will live with me forever.
We are taking a look back at Sunday 30th January 2022 when thousands retraced the original route taken 50 ago from Creggan to the Bogside. Sunday 30th January 2022 was a day to remember those who lost their lives and were wounded fifty years ago. #bloodysunday50
