On Claudy…

Mentioned by David Dunseith yesterday, another anniversary yesterday was the bombing of the Co Derry village of Claudy. He also quoted the powerful last lines of the James Simmons’ poem:

And Christ little Katherine Aiken is dead,
and Mrs McLaughlin is pierced through the head.
Meanwhile to Dungiven the killers have gone,
and they’re finding it hard to get through on the phone
