A Tribute to Innocents – memorial quilt exhibition
Victoria Gallery and Museum, Victoria Building, 150 Brownlow Hill, Liverpool L3 5RF
Monday 26th March – Saturday 21st April 2018
The key messages of the Memorial Quilts are:
- Violence was futile and totally unjustified.
- Those remembered were wholly innocent.
- The legacy of those represented will live on amongst those left behind.
Your Legacy Lives on Memorial Quilt
The Your Legacy Lives On Memorial quilt was SEFF’s (South East Fermanagh Foundation) first Memorial Quilt and contains individual patches to a range of atrocities and victims based particularly but not exclusively in the Co. Fermanagh and west Tyrone area. Within the quilt are remembered three brothers- the Grahams. The 70 plus patches remember those from military, police, prison service and civilian-based backgrounds.
Terrorism Knows No Borders Memorial Quilt
The Terrorism Knows No Borders Memorial Quilt contains individual patches to a range of atrocities and victims based in Great Britain ie. Hyde Park and Regents Park bombings, M62 Coach bombing, Warrington, Birmingham, Deal Barracks, Airey Neave MP and Ian Gow MP, and also includes patches recounting atrocities committed in the Republic of Ireland- Dublin, Monaghan, Belturbut bombs and a number of security force and civilian-based murders.
A Patchwork of Innocents Memorial Quilt
A Patchwork of Innocents Memorial Quilt contains a powerful centrepiece in the shape of a heart which seeks to raise awareness around the cost of “The Troubles” upon our youngest- under 16’s who lost their lives. Amongst those remembered is the youngest victim of “The Troubles” who was Alan Jack (5 months) murdered via a PIRA terrorist bomb in Ballymagrory, Strabane.
