Margaret Hulihan
Margaret grew up a little ways outside Darry in a small village with her mother, a seamstress, and her father, who worked as a cobbler. She shared a room with two sisters and teased her younger brother mercilessly. She would often visit family in Bogside around Christmas time and, though their means were often meager, Christmas never failed to be an evening of good cheer. One of those Christmases when Margaret was thirty two she met her future husband, Henry. Two years later they were married and moved to his flat in Bogside to be close to the family. Two years later she gave birth to her only son and five years later the troubles started. She lost her son and husband to riots.
