A solution has been reached about where to site a memorial to the victims of the Enniskillen bomb.

The device exploded during a Remembrance Sunday ceremony in the town in 1987.

Eleven people, many of them old-age pensioners, were killed and 63 were injured.

A 12th victim died after spending 13 years in a coma.

A monument was unveiled last year to mark the 30th anniversary of the attack and has since been in storage.

The development was proposed for land owned by St Michael's Diocesan Trust, but earlier this year the Trust rejected the plans.

A meeting was held in the town on Tuesday with all parties concerning the siting of the memorial.

In a statement, the The Dean of Enniskillen Cathedral, The Very Rev Kenneth Hall said: “Good progress has been made and a solution has been reached by all parties involved to site the memorial within the gable wall of the Clinton Centre subject to necessary approvals.

“However we envisage that this work will take time but all parties are committed to work together to complete this matter within a reasonable timescale.”
