Jayne Olorunda, from Belfast was just two years old when her father, Nigerian born, Max Olorunda was killed by an IRA incendiary bomb which detonated prematurely in Dunmurry aboard a train from Ballymena to Belfast in January 1980.
Since the death of her father Jayne and her family have been forced to overcome the devastating effects of losing an innocent loved one while struggling to battle racism, poverty and grief. In Legacy Jayne recounts the very personal story of her mother Gabrielle’s deteriorating health, how they eventually met the “man who killed” her father, how Gabrielle ended up believing her family was under the spell of a Nigerian voodoo curse and Jayne’s own struggle as a mixed race catholic child who “never really fitted in anywhere”.
Legacy is one family’s story of how Northern Ireland deals with victims of the troubles. An insight through the closed doors of those left behind.
