A GP who helped wounded soldiers at the scene of the 1988 Ballygawley bus bomb says it was “a waste of life”.
Dr Clifford McCord was a GP who lived about five miles away from the scene of the attack.
The GP was called to the scene by a neighbour who phoned him.
“I went over there and there were boys lying all about,” he said. “I sorted them out and sent the ones that needed help to the hospital.
“I had been in the RAF and was quite used to that sort of thing.
“It was a waste of life – that is all. I had already been to several incidents like this. I lost about 20 of my patients in my GP practice during the Troubles.”
Many were members of the security forces, he added.
