A special outdoor Mass at the Republican Garden of Remembrance in South Link, Andersonstown on Sunday 8 August, remembered those republican activists from the area who died during the conflict.

Celebrated by Fr Des Wilson, it was a moving ceremony that comforted the many relatives of the dead who attended.

In his sermon, Fr Des told his congregation that those killed in the conflict, "were indeed stolen from us.

"When young lives were stolen and grief entered the hearts of a family never to depart from them, we were suffering a conflict brought on us not by our people's fault or sin but by bad government."
