OF INQUESTS OF VICTIMS OF DUBLIN BOMBINGS
The inquests into the three deaths resulting from the Dublin Bombings of 1 December 1972 and 20 January 1973 are listed before the Dublin City Coroner tomorrow, Friday, 25 July at 2.00 pm at the Coroners Court, Store Street, Dublin.
Two car bombs exploded in Dublin on the evening of 1 December 1972 on the third night of the Dáil debate on the Offences Against the State (Amendment) Bill.
The second bomb exploded in Sackville Place.
George Bradshaw and Thomas Duffy, both employees of CIE, were killed.
On the afternoon of 20 January 1973, another car bomb exploded in Sackville Place killing Thomas Douglas, a CIE bus conductor, who was a native of Scotland.
The families of the victims will be gathering at our Family Support Centre, 64, Lower Gardiner Street from 1.00 pm tomorrow and will walk together to the Coroners Court.
The purpose of the hearing is so that the Coroner can make arrangements for the resumption of the inquests that were adjourned shortly after the mens deaths and were never concluded.
The families of the victims attach great significance to the formal resumption of these inquests.
