Southeast Fermanagh Federation has created three memorial quilts entitled; 'Your Legacy Lives On', 'Terrorism Knows NO Borders' and 'A Patchwork of Innocents', to demonstrate the human cost of terrorism and criminal violence.

Across the three quilts, approximately 360 innocent individuals not involved in proscribed organisations are remembered. They are ordinary people – both adults and children – from all faith backgrounds and none, who would have been defined as British, Irish or other nationalities. The quilts send a unified message that criminal violence is not an acceptable means to advance or defend a political objective.

Individual quilt patches contain symbols that are personal to those remembered and honoured. These patches have been produced by the families of those who died and/or a team of volunteers. Each patch humanises the victim and draws upon their personality and our obligation to remember them.
