AN ATTEMPT to name a north Belfast Street in memory of 15 people murdered in a Loyalist bombing which the then RUC  claimed was an own goal and accused the McGurk family being personally involved in the bombing is back on the agenda, despite unionist opposition.

Residents of Fisher Court want it renamed McGurks way, after the bombing nearby of Mc Gurks bar in 1971. The move was passed by a Belfast city council Committee, but on a split vote.

DUP councillor Brian Kingston opposed it. ” Is this the route we want to go down, renaming streets in Belfast after atrocities of the troubles, ” he asked.

  1. Well from my position “across the pond” I have to follow the quote of George Santayana, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” Not naming the street McGurk’s Way does not change what occurred, nor does it erase the memory. Naming it thus, applies balm to the wounds and continues the path of healing. Councillor Kingston is dead wrong.
