A MAN who lost his father after the IRA killed Remembrance Sunday worshippers marked the 25th anniversary of the attack by appealing for peace.

Days after the shooting dead of a prison officer, an emotional Stephen Gault laid a floral tribute to his retired police 
officer parent at a special service remembering the Enniskillen Poppy Day bomb attack in Northern Ireland.

Eleven people including three married couples and pensioners died at a commemoration for the dead of the two World Wars. A twelfth death was recorded later.

Their names have since been added to the cenotaph in the Co Fermanagh town.

Democratic Unionist politician, Lord Maurice Morrow, told a crowd of veterans and relatives yesterday: “They were not 
soldiers answering for battle. They were deemed, however, to be legitimate targets because they wanted to honour those of all faiths.”
