The Cost Of The Bloody Sunday Inquiry

On a shelf in a glass case, in a room in the Bogside area of Derry, there is a yellowing cotton Babygro covered in brown blotches. The stains were made by the blood of Michael Kelly, a 17-year-old boy who was shot dead in the street just outside. “We carried him into a house,” recalls his brother John, still angry and grieving 36 years later. “The woman there grabbed anything she could to try and stop the flow of blood.” A piece for The Independent On Sunday
