Unquiet Graves: The Story of the Glenanne Gang

Alan Brecknell from the Pat Finucane Center will present the documentary Unquiet Graves: The Story of the Glenanne Gang which details how members of the RUC and UDR, (a British Army regiment) were centrally involved in the murder of over 120 innocent civilians during the recent conflict in Ireland.  It will detail how these members worked hand in hand with known sectarian murderers in the targeted assassinations of farmers, shopkeepers, publicans and other civilians in a campaign aimed at terrorizing the most vulnerable in society. Now known as the Glenanne Gang, the group of killers rampaged through Counties Tyrone and Armagh and across into the Irish Republic in a campaign that lasted from July 1972 to the end of 1978.

The film is narrated by academy award nominated actor Stephen Rea and directed by award winning director, Seán Murray.
Admission is free and open to all.  Doors open at 7pm for a meet and greet with the film presentation at 7:30. Documentary is 1 hour and 15 minutes.

CANCELLED -“No Stone Unturned” – A Documentary on the 1994 Loughinisland Massacre

Due to circumstances beyond our control, we regret to inform you that we must cancel our presentation of the documentary tonight.  Due to the “Beast From the East” storm pummeling Ireland, our guests speakers had their flight cancelled and our own local weather is not so rosy either.
We apologize one again. 
Be safe  and best regards,

NO STONE UNTURNED

Investigative documentary filmmaker Alex Gibney—best known for 2008’s Oscar-winning Taxi to the Dark Side, Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room, and at least a dozen others—turns his sights on the 1994 Loughinisland massacre, a cold case that remains an open wound in the Irish peace process. The families of the victims—who were murdered while watching the World Cup in their local pub—were promised justice, but 20 years later they still didn’t know who killed their loved ones. Gibney uncovers a web of secrecy, lies, and corruption that so often results when the powerful insist they are acting for the greater good.
