A car bomb was detonated on August 15th 1998

The victims of the Omagh bombing will be remembered today, 20 years on since the atrocity.

Twenty-nine people died in the attack, including a woman pregnant with twins.

A memorial service will take place in the Co Tryone town this afternoon.

The Good Friday Agreement had been signed just months before a car bomb was to devastate the town of Omagh on August 15th 1998.

Twenty-nine people were killed including a woman pregnant with twins on that summer afternoon in the Co Tyrone town.

The attack resulted in the greatest loss of life in any single act of terror throughout The Troubles.

The Real IRA claimed the attack, a dissident republican movement opposed to the Good Friday Agreement.

Relatives and surviving victims of the Omagh bomb, 20 years ago, will today come together for a memorial service for the 31 victims.

Enterprise Minister Heather Humphreys will represent the Irish Government at the event.
