80th anniversary of North Strand Bombing

Today is the 80th anniversary of the WWII bombing of North Strand when four bombs were dropped over the area by German aircraft. 

A ceremony was held earlier to remember the 28 people who lost their lives on the night of May 30/31 1941.

Wreaths were laid during the ceremony with Lord Mayor of Dublin Hazel Chu, German ambassador Deike Potzel, and two survivors of the bombing each laying a wreath at the remembrance plaque in North Strand.

The impact of the bombing was strongly felt in the city of Dublin as it resulted in the death of 28 people, injured over 90 and caused the destruction of 300 houses.

Dublin City Archives hold a unique set of resources which tell the story of the North Stand Bombing and its impact on the people of Dublin.
