Rawness of Loughinisland massacre ever present for families and victims
Last night millions of US viewers watched ESPN's 30 for 30 'Ceasefire Massacre', a documentary which reflects on the events of June 18, 1994 both in Giants Stadium, New York and Loughinisland, Co Down.
It's a typically engaging piece of work from Oscar winner Alex Gibney, which captures the contrast between the collective euphoria after Ray Houghton's goal and the brutal murder of six innocent people, watching the game on television.
Houghton speaks of the sombre atmosphere on the plane after the game as news of the atrocity filtered through. The most memorable contributions naturally come from family members of victims and survivors of the attack, all of whom conduct their interviews from The Heights Bar.
