27 Apr 2019
Lyra McKee, the journalist shot dead by a masked New IRA gunman in the Creggan area of Derry on Thursday week last, is to be remembered at an event being held in the city tomorrow. Derry Trades Union Council (DTUC) will "stand together as one and in solidarity, remembering the dead and fighting for the living" on International Workers Memorial Day. Niall McCarroll., from DTUC, said: "We will be honouring the hundreds of thousands of working people killed or injured doing their jobs every year. "Events will be held throughout the world, with Derry Trades Union Council marking International Workers Memorial Day on Sunday 28th April at 6.00pm in Guildhall Square." Mr McCarroll concluded: "Local trade unionists will welcome everyone through word and song, and we send an invitation out to the people of Derry."
