HER Majesty The Queen has sent her prayers to the victims and families of the Enniskillen bomb as they mark the 25th anniversary of the atrocity today.
"My thoughts are with the victims, the bereaved, and with all those who continue to bear the scars of this dreadful event," she said.
The Queen's message was relayed to the families by the Lord-Lieutenant of Fermanagh Anthony Hamilton.
"A quarter of a century ago, we were able to draw comfort and strength from the hope that out of the personal tragedies of Enniskillen might come eventual reconciliation between communities. Today, a quarter of a century later, we can all reflect on how far we have travelled along this road."
Her Majesty recalled her visit to Enniskillen earlier this year which she said "gave me much reason to be optimistic about the future".
"My good wishes and prayers are with everyone who will be marking today's anniversary, and with all those who strive for peace in this country and throughout the world."
