Today marks 47 years since bombs detonated in Dublin City and Monaghan town.

There are hopes the families of those killed in the Dublin and Monaghan bombings can get the same closure as those in Ballymurphy.

Today marks 47 years since the greatest single loss of life during The Troubles, when 34 people were killed in four explosions, including 7 in Monaghan town.

Families of the victims have been campaigning for years, calling on the British Government to release all relevant documents it holds into investigations.

Responding to local Senator Robbie Gallagher in the Seanad this morning, Minister Colm Brophy said the bombing is brought up at every opportunity when senior politicians from both islands meet, and the Coroner's verdict into the Ballymurphy massacre should give others hope.

Senator Gallagher says it's vital that the issue is kept to the fore.
