Enniskillen minister recalls Poppy Day bombing 35 years ago

A minister only months into the job when the Enniskillen bomb exploded near his church has described the atrocity as a potential turning point on Northern Ireland’s road to peace. Six of the eleven people killed on November 8 1987 in the IRA’s infamous Remembrance Sunday attack were members of the Reverend David Cupples’ congregation. A 12th victim of the blast, who died years later having never woken from a coma, was also a member of Enniskillen Presbyterian Church.
