"People started running so I ran with them and we ran into the courtyard of the Rossville Flats - they were demolished before you were born. And then Jack Duddy was shot right beside me. That was the first intimation that I got that what was happening was something very serious. And then all hell broke loose. There was firing and people just were murdered. And so there was a period of incredulity - that what you were seeing was a film or a dream. There was no reality about it. So it was a gradual process and we were well aware that there was something very seriously wrong."
Question: There are all sorts of theories as to what happened on that day. What do you think?
Daly: "I don't know, I just know the results. I know what happened. I think that innocent people were killed unjustifiably by soldiers. The thing I'm interested in is why it happened, which is what I hope this new tribunal will discover. And as well as that they must state quite clearly and unequivocally that the people killed were innocent, as they were. They were not posing any threat to anyone."
