A SPECIAL commemoration service will take place at the memorial site of the Ballygawley bus bombing.
The event will be held on Sunday to mark the 25th anniversary of the death of eight soldiers.
The bombing occurred in the early hours of 20 August 1988 in the townland of Curr. The attack also wounded another 28 soldiers.
The unmarked 52-seater bus had been transporting 36 soldiers of The Light Infantry from RAF Aldergrove to a military base near Omagh.
After it passed Ballygawley, IRA members remotely detonated a 200 pounds semtex roadside bomb.
According to police, the bomb had been planted in a vehicle by the roadside. The blast hurled the bus 30 metres down the road and catapulted soldiers into neighbouring hedges and fields. It left a crater 6 ft deep and scattered wreckage at least 100 yards.
