In April of 1998 the Good Friday Agreement was signed, marking a new way forward for peace in Northern Ireland between those loyal to the UK and Ireland.
Despite the Agreement, some ex-members of the IRA formed a new splinter-group called the “Real IRA”, planned a bombing to show their opposition.
Months later they planted a 500 pound (230 kg) bomb within the trunk of a car in a busy section of Omagh. The picture above is that of a man and his daughter standing unknowingly next to the explosive-laden vechicle minutes before it exploded.
The man and his daughter survived. However 29 people would die and more than 300 were wounded.
Nobody has ever been found guilty in relation to a crime regarding the bombing.
Omagh, Northern Ireland - August 15, 1998.
