Bloody Sunday 1972

Bloody Sunday, 30 January 1972

Madden & Finucane represent the family of William McKinney who was shot dead in Glenfada Park, and Joe Mahon, Joe Friel and Michael Quinn who were shot and wounded in Glenfada Park. We also represent the family of Patrick O’Donnell who was shot and wounded but who has since died.

Following today’s decision by District Judge Magill to admit significant hearsay applications in respect of five former paratroopers who were present on Bloody Sunday, Mickey McKinney, brother of William McKinney, said:

“We welcome the decision of District Judge Magill to admit into evidence the statements of five former paratroopers.

“Each of these witnesses provides significant evidence of Soldier F being present in Glenfada Park firing his weapon.

“We look forward now with renewed confidence to Soldier F being formally returned to stand trial for murder and attempted murder as expeditiously as possible”.
