The memorial is not a fitting memorial to those affected by this atrocity. (My sister was one of those killed in the Tavern. There is no memorial at all at the two venues that were affected, one of which is now a Chinese restaurant. The City should do more for the families of those killed.

Very small and insignificant. At least there is something interesting city to remember these atrocities. Never realised it was in 1974.

This memorial is too small it is overlooked unless you are seeking it out. Surely those people vwho lost their lives in the terrible bombings deserve a more significant memorial in the Cathedral grounds

This is a small and unfortunately pretty insignificant memorial to the terrible pub bombings. The victims really do deserve a far more impressive monument. The location is ideal in the cathedral gardens, but unless you were actually looking for it then you would very easily miss it.
