AFTERMATH REVIEW

Aftermath: The Omagh Bombing and the Families’ Pursuit of Justice
by Ruth Dudley Edwards
Vintage, £8.99

The Omagh bomb, detonated in 1998, was the worst atrocity in Ulster’s modern history.  Dudley Edwards has pieced together the conspiracy carried out by the Real IRA, the so-called “dissident Republicans”, and her book is a portrait of and tribute to the victims’ families who mounted an unprecedented challenge to the bombers by taking them on in the civil courts.  It is also a gripping legal drama, featuring Jason McCue, the glamorous lawyer who, spurred by vanity and dogged idealism, took on and won the case.  The story is extraordinary. 

Stephen Robinson
