Guildford Four's Gerry Conlon, whose story was portrayed in the film "In the name of the Father", dies
Gerry Conlon, known for his wrong conviction in 1974 for the Guildford IRA pub bombing, has died aged 60. He was one of the Guildford Four, who spent 15 years in prison before their convictions were annulled in 1989. He was imprisoned along with his father. His father died in jail in 1980.
His story was better known to the younger public by the 1993 Oscar-nominated film In The Name Of The Father, starring Daniel Day-Lewis.
In 2005 the serving at the time Prime Minister Tony Blair, apologized for this tremendous injustice.
Ever since I first set foot on a cinema theatre, I knew that something magical was happening there....
