Director of Services within SEFF Kenny Donaldson explains:
The purpose of the Trails is two-fold:
- To educate our young people, academics, clergy, politicians, reconciliation-based activists and all others of the specific nature of the criminal violence which occurred in County Fermanagh and the harrowing acts committed against the people of these borderlands who to date have not saw justice, truth and accountability served for what they went through – a pitiful 5% of murders committed in County Fermanagh by PIRA have been cleared.
- To respectfully honour and remember those who perished, whose lives were stolen – we remember the innocents whose basic human right to life was taken from them.
SEFF has had a longstanding Border Trial (South Fermanagh) which is the area where the organisation owes its’ roots. Chairman Eric Brown has been facilitating this Trial for many years with approximately 90-100 Coach groups having gone on the Trial at this point. The groups engaging have included; Peace groups, groups from the Republic of Ireland, US students, academics, clergy, media, community organisations, victim’s groups, Loyal Order connected groups and many others.
An 1 hour long DVD encapsulating footage from the four Trials along with a narrative intro has been prepared in recent months and will be made available to those interested in engaging with the Project.
