Biography

Michael Gallagher lost his only son, Aiden, in the largest terrorist bombing during the 30 year Troubles in Northern Ireland. The attack took place in Omagh, County Tyrone on August 15, 1998, just four months before the Good Friday agreement was signed. Since the deadly bombing, which killed 29 people, Gallagher has been a staunch advocate of promoting peace. Working with a support group of those who also lost loved ones, Gallagher has demanded legal repercussions against the attack’s perpetrators, Real IRA. He attended two international conferences for victims of terrorism in Spain and Colombia, and works with his wife and two daughters to preserve the memory of his son and to help other victims of terrorism.
