With reference to the article in the North Belfast News on September 10, ‘Massacre Anniversary Plans Gathering Pace’: The family of Kathleen Irvine, killed in McGurk’s Bar on December 4, 1971 would like it to be known that we do not have anything to do with the fundraising event or the asking of monetary funds from the public.

What we are and always have been asking for is truth and justice and our campaign for that will continue.
