Dublin, Monaghan bomb inquests reopen
27/04/2004 - 12:16:51

The inquests into the deaths of 33 people in the 1974 Dublin and Monaghan bombings have reopened in Dublin after a 30-year adjournment.

The original inquests opened on May 27, 1974, but were adjourned within days.

Relatives of the victims of the bombings are due to give evidence to the new inquests over the next two days.

The entire hearing is likely to last up to two weeks, with survivors, eyewitnesses, gardaí and forensic experts all due in the witness stand.

Thirty-three people and an unborn child died when loyalist paramilitaries detonated three car bombs in Dublin and one in Monaghan on May 17, 1974.

Nobody has ever been brought to justice in connection with the atrocity.
