The Thirty-first anniversary of the murder of the German backpacker, Inga-Maria Hauser will be marked at Ballypatrick Forest, outside Ballycastle next Saturday by people dedicated to getting justice for her family and making her life known for the incredibly talented and gifted person she was.

Keeley Moss who has done extensive work into the life of Inga-Maria and is in the course of publishing a book in her honour will sing the folk song ‘Green Sleeves’ which Inga recorded before setting out for her mid-term trip to Ireland.

Those attending will be invited to help lay 31 red roses at her memorial stone, one for each year that has passed since her badly beaten body was found in the Forest on 6 April 1988.

John Dallat MLA who campaigned to have her murder case reopened will be among those attending.

He said:

When we marked the 30th anniversary of Inga-Maria’s tragic death I expressed the hope that the person or persons involved in her murder would soon be in court. Sadly, that hasn’t happened yet but we must remain hopeful that this will happen and so we will continue with our campaign to keep alive Inga’s memory and the need for justice for her family.

Saturday really is an opportunity to gather together as ordinary people from different walks of life, united in a common cause to commemorate Inga’s life and reflect on the amazing person she was.

My thanks to Keeley Moss who through her blog and, in the near future, her book has allowed us an incredible insight into the life of Inga. No longer is she just a German backpacker but someone who was very special, gifted and deserved to live.

The gathering is at 12.00 noon at Ballypatrick Forest on the road between Ballycastle and Cushendall.
