“It important we remember all those lives lost to terrorism, not just in the Troubles, but further afield over the years,” said Councillor Eastwood.

“Lives have been lost and others changed forever by people being injured or having their loved ones killed. Those who have lived their lives following experiencing something like have shown a courage I can only imagine and which I am constantly amazed by.
