Celebrating Nurses’ who worked at the frontline during the Troubles

1st December 2015

Many of those at lunch had also taken part in the very powerful BBC documentary Nurses on the Front Line inspired by the book. Moore Sinnerton who made the programme joined us as did colleagues from RoyalCollege of Nursing.

Michael cooked a lovely lunch, helped in the serving by Gerard, Tucker, Sean and Till. So thanks to them all.

It was a great afternoon, ending with Xmas songs from the famous WAVE choir. Well done to our singers.

It's clear the Nurses there have very many more stories to tell as I am sure do many people who served this community over the years and whose voices are never heard.

Copies of the book Nurses’ voices from the Northern Ireland Troubles is available from the Royal College of Nursing, 17 Windsor Avenue, Belfast. Tel phone 02890384612
