Martin McGuinness saddened by death of Bloody Sunday victim
The North’s joint First Minister said:
“I extend my sincere condolences to Mona and the Bradley family on the sad and sudden death of Mickey. Mickey was very seriously wounded on Bloody Sunday when British paratroopers launched a murderous attack on a Civil Rights march.
“Although carrying the physical symptoms of that attack ever since, Mickey never ceased in his efforts along with the other Bloody Sunday families to fight for the full truth of what happened on that fateful day to be revealed. In fact, I met him and other representatives of the families in my Stormont Office only last week.
“It is unfortunate that Mickey will not now see the publication of the Saville Report and what will hopefully see a validation of all the hard work and effort that he and the families have invested in seeking truth and justice for the Bloody Sunday victims.”
