In the early evening of Saturday the 4th December 1971, British extremists from the Ulster Volunteer Force planted a no-warning bomb on the doorstep of a family-run bar in north Belfast. It ripped through the building and killed 15 men, women and children the country s most devastating massacre of civilians since the Nazi Blitz. Nevertheless, the innocent victims that night were to become the forgotten victims of a dirty war. Government, British military and RUC police sources immediately blamed the bombing as an Irish Republican own goal even though the full weight of evidence, including a witness who saw the bomb being planted, proved it was a terrorist attack. As the families were burying their loved ones, the State drip-fed black propaganda into the intelligence stream, media and public consciousness. Since then the families have fought tirelessly and constitutionally to clear their names - for their only crime was the faith they followed. Ciarán MacAirt s grandmother, Kitty Irvine, was one of those murdered in the McGurk s Bar Massacre. His meticulous research has uncovered historic documents hidden in archives which cast a cold light on collusion and cover-up by the State. It is a paper trail that goes to the highest levels of the Government, police and military and proves that society today must learn from the lessons of history. His research has featured in TV, radio and documentary programmes and in 2011 he presented his testimony to the powerful US Helsinki Commission on Capitol Hill, Washington DC.
