7:36 pm
them to leap on the story and say give us everything you've got but the interaction was quite different it was oh no not enough a catholic substory. i was just so so disappointed and that reaction to what i've discovered. pushed for the story and in the end it was. in and around this time information started to emerge about what would be enormous loyalist attacks in the area. i suppose i didn't know much more about water top and other than the ones that are going to call the right wing commander claimed responsibility for the attack. so at this time i begin to ask questions of myself about what i did or didn't know but what i actually help and i started to ask questions of local people about what they remembered about what they knew about the night and but we didn't know it really know where to go to try and find out
