"A momentous chronicle, timely and vital, which highlights that the burden of change rests, as always, upon the shoulders of those who suffered and yet, have nurtured the desire that lessons be learned."
(Michael Mansfield QC, who represented a number of families during the Bloody Sunday Inquiry.)
"It’s a wonderful book. The technique used – multiple voices speaking directly to us – is very simple but it has a profound effect. It puts us into the middle of the chaos of Bloody Sunday and keeps us there throughout the grief and anger that follow. A wonderful, wonderful book."
(Jimmy McGovern, BAFTA winning screenwriter, creator of ‘Sunday’ (2002))
"This was a day like no other in my lifetime… a day that affected the lives of countless thousands on this Island. A day that many of us will never forget…. I look forward to reading Julieann Campbell’s book On Bloody Sunday."In January 1972, a peaceful civil rights march in Northern Ireland ended in bloodshed. Troops from Britain’s 1st Battalion Parachute Regiment opened fire on marchers, leaving 13 dead and 15 wounded. Seven of those killed were teenage boys. The day became known as ‘Bloody Sunday’.
(Christy Moore, Irish songwriter)
