Newry and Armagh MP Mickey Brady has written to the Chief Constable George Hamilton requesting musical instruments taken by forensics on the night of the Miami Showband massacre be returned to the survivors. Miami BradyBrady wrote to the Chief Constable to request information on the instruments after speaking to a number of survivors at an event marking the 40th anniversary of the massacre. “On Sunday 2nd August I attended an event outside Newry to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the murderous attack on the Miami Show Band. In all that time the survivors have quietly lived with the memories of that night and the nightmare of reliving the horrendous attack,” he said. “I am told by the survivors that the instruments that were in their vehicle on that night were kept by forensic teams and to this day they have never had these returned. Obviously these personal items hold great sentimental value to the survivors and their families. “As such I have written to the Chief Constable asking for information on the whereabouts or status of the instruments,” he added.
