Irish archbishop pleads for information about people who 'disappeared' during years of violence

March 21, 2016

Archbishop Eamon Martin of Armah, the Primate of All Ireland, has urged urged anyone who has information about the fate of people who "disappeared" during the violence of the 1970s and 1980s to contact a commission that is searching for victims' remains.

"I appeal to the conscience of anyone who has information," the archbishop said. He observed that "even at this late stage, the remaining families can experience the consolation of being able to offer a Christian burial to their loved ones."
