THE HILLSBOROUGH TRAGEDY

Friends Of Liverpool

Twenty short years ago, here in the west of Ireland, I was out painting the garden fence on a beautiful sunny afternoon.
I was looking forward to the FA cup match between my beloved Liverpool and Nottingham Forest on TV.
Little did I know what was about to unfold that terrible day.
Instead of watching a football match, ninety six young men and women died on that fateful day.
They will never be forgotten by anyone connected to or supporters of the club and that is as it should be.
I hope justice is finally done for the ninety six who died.
I hope the British government finally stands up and admit that the policing on the day was inadequate and was the root cause of the countless deaths.
I hope that people, who should know better, stop saying the fans were drunk and disorderly which they were not.
Finally, I hope that all the victims rest in peace.
