A public meeting with Niall Murphy; a human rights lawyer and solicitor representing the Loughinisland Massacre families and survivors, and Trevor Birney, of ‘Below the Radar’, an award-winning producer and director currently working on a feature length documentary film on the Loughinisland Massacre and the operation of Collusion across the north during the conflict.
The evening will discuss the recent Police Ombudsman’s report into the massacre, which once again confirmed a shocking scale of collusion between the RUC and loyalist paramilitaries during the conflict in the north of Ireland.

The evening will be chaired by Pat Doherty Sinn Fein MP for West Tyrone.

On 18 June 1994, six men were murdered whilst watching a World Cup match, between Ireland and Italy, when loyalist gunmen burst into the Heights Bar in Loughinisland, Co. Down, and opened fire.
Five others were wounded. The men who died were Adrian Rogan, 34, Malcolm Jenkinson, 53, Barney Green, 87, Daniel McCreanor 59, Patrick O’Hare, 35, and Eamon Byrne, 39.
In the recently released Ombudsman Report, Dr Michael Maguire concluded: “I have no hesitation in saying collusion was a significant feature of the Loughinisland murders.”
