Description

It is almost 40 years since the Guildford pub bombings killed 5 and injured 65, a crime for which Gerry spent 15 years in prison. While in prison he and his father Giuseppe endlessly campaigned for justice, a campaign which ultimately cost Giuseppe his life. Gerry gives a revealing and emotional interview about the injustice suffered by him and his family.

Tá beagnach 40 bliain ann ó maraíodh 5 agus gortaíodh 65 i mbuamáil Guildford, coir as ar chaith Gerry Conlon 15 bliain i bpríosún. Agus é i gcarcair, chuaigh sé féin agus a athair i mbun feachtais chun ceartas a bhaint amach, cé go bhfuair Giuseppe bás roimh an toradh deiridh. Tugann Gerry agallamh léargasach agus mothúchánach faoin éagóir a d'fhulaing sé féin agus a theaghlach.
