Brian Stewart

13 year-old Brian Stewart died on October 10th, 1976 – 42 years ago today – six days after being hit by a plastic bullet fired by the King’s Own Scottish Borders near his Turf Lodge Home. He was buried three days later, on October 13th – what would have been his fourteenth birthday. (For the long search for justice, see sister Marie Stewart | sceptic peg | saoirse32).

No Dogs, No POWs

2013-08-04 No POWs+
“No blacks, no Irish, no dogs, no POWs – sponsored by SDLP/TUV” (Traditional Unionist Voice). The reference of this board in Turf Lodge is a June motion in the NI Assembly to bar anyone convicted of a serious offence from serving as a ministerial adviser (the trigger case being Mary McArdle). Passage of the bill was secured with SDLP members supported the motion.
