Early on a Saturday morning in August 1998, a car was parked in Omagh's hightreet. By the afternoon, the pavements had filled with shoppers, and thenxplosives packed inside the vehicle detonated. The force of the blast blewabies across the street, and tore the limbs from children. One body wasdentified only by its fingerprints. It was the worst single atrocity of theroubles. Only it could have been avoided. Kevin Fulton had infiltrated theRA. When news came to him of the planned attack, he handed the informationn to his handlers. It was ignored.
