Archbishop Eamon Martin recalls Bloody Sunday amid plea for ‘meaningful reconciliation’

Archbishop of Armagh and Primate of Ireland, Eamon Martin, remembered his experience of Bloody Sunday during Mass on Sunday at Saint Eugene’s Cathedral (Derry, Northern Ireland) and called for the building of “meaningful reconciliation.” Archbishop Martin was 10 years old on January 30, 1972, when 13 innocent civil rights demonstrators were shot dead by soldiers in what became known as Bloody Sunday, during the Northern Ireland conflict. The archbishop acknowledged that building reconciliation is “complicated and delicate” but said that if “if we are to unite hearts and minds and nourish a genuine hope for lasting peace and reconciliation in Ireland, then we have to work together on healing the legacy of our shared past.”
