Omagh memorial’s design to be shown

The winning design for the Omagh Bomb Memorial, by a Dublin design team, will be unveiled in the Co Tyrone town tomorrow. In April, the Omagh Memorial Working Group launched the public art design competition to provide a permanent memorial to the victims of the bombing, both at the bomb site and in the nearby memorial garden. The design, by artist Seán Hillen and landscape architect Desmond FitzGerald, was one of five shortlisted finalists, with other entries coming from Spain, Belfast and Norfolk. “Constant Light” is the theme of the winning design. The site of the explosion at Market Street will be marked by a solid glass pillar, about 4.5m (14.7ft) high, with a three-dimensional glass heart which appears to be suspended inside.
