Dark days of the Troubles

throughout the history of the troubles there were many dark days that are thankfully consigned to the past.

One that resonated across the island was the massacre of three members of the Miami showband in July 1975.

The popular band crossed the sectarian divide and the deaths of Fran O'Toole, Tony Geraghty and Brian McCoy are remembered vividly to this day. Even those who are less than 40 years old have heard of the wonderful Miami Showband.

Their memory lives on to this day and the greatest honour that can be afforded to them is that such dark days never return again.
