Justice for the Forgotten was formed in 1996 with the aim of campaigning for truth and justice for the victims of the Dublin and Monaghan bombings of 17 May 1974.

34 people, including an unborn baby, died that day, resulting in the greatest loss of life in a single day of the Troubles. We support and represent the overwhelming majority of those bereaved families and many wounded survivors.

The organisation also represents the bereaved families and survivors of the Dublin bombings of December 1972 and January 1973, those of the Belturbet (December 1972), Dundalk (December 1975) and Castleblayney (March 1976) bombings, as well as the families and survivors of the Miami Showband murders (July 1975).

A number of families who lost loved ones in single death incidents are also represented.
