Families of those gunned down in the Kingsmills massacre yesterday assembled on the 38th anniversary to remember the 10 textile workers who were murdered.

More than 60 people attended the service, during which a wreath was laid at the new memorial marking the site of the massacre. The service was led by Pastor Barrie Halliday of Five Mile Hill Pentecostal Church in Bessbrook.

UUP MLA for Newry and Armagh, Danny Kennedy, who attended the service, said some of the victims’ relatives “were unable to attend today, but they were there in spirit”.
