A PIONEERING event bringing together clergy from the area to explore how the Troubles have impacted them is currently underway at Brackaville Parish Church in Coalisland.

Wednesday’s event has been organised by a group of clergy from the area in partnership with the Irish Churches Peace Project which is supported by the European Union’s PEACE III Programme managed by the Special EU Programmes Body.

The conference is hosted by Rev Andrew Rawding and Father Paul Byrne, clergy from the area.

Good Relations Departments in Dungannon, Magherafelt and Cookstown Councils are also supporting the event.

The conference called ‘Go, And Do Thou Likewise’ posed the question: ‘how can clergy address the legacy of the Troubles?’

A number of guest speakers, including Professor Brandon Hamber, Director of the University of Ulster’s Institute for Conflict Research, are addressing the audience.
