A weekend when Omagh remembers
People who helped at the scene are still being treated for trauma
A number of events are taking place this weekend to commemorate the worst terrorist atrocity of the Norhern Ireland Troubles.
From Friday evening, the town was closed off with no through traffic until Monday morning.
A temporary Garden of Remembrance where people can lay floral tributes, has been created at Market Street, the scene of the bomb.
The flowers will later be recycled and used to sustain a special rose garden, created at the Tyrone County Hospital in memory of the bomb victims.
All day the Cyber Café at Sedan Avenue will be open for young people and the Bridge Centre base for the Community Trauma and Recovery Team and other voluntary organisation, will be open on Saturday and Sunday.
Omagh Library will be displaying a number of items relating to the bombing.
These include condolence books, a collection of patchwork quilts, Petals of Hope/Rrays of Light floral art exhibition and a selection of the sympathy messages sent to the people of the town. The display will run for two weeks.
