Manchester bombing victim Eilidh MacLeod will be remembered at Glasgow Cathedral later this month in a ceremony marking the first anniversary of the terror attack.

Eilidh, from Barra, was one of 22 people killed at the Ariana Grande concert at Manchester Arena on May 22. Her 15-year-old friend Laura MacIntyre survived the blast but suffered serious hand and leg injuries.

A civic memorial service will take place in Manchester Cathedral this Tuesday May 22 and Glasgow Cathedral is offering a public screening of it between 2pm and 3pm.

A spokesperson for Glasgow Cathedral: ‘Much media coverage was given up here focusing on the two young girls from Barra, and their membership in the islands’ pipe band. Therefore we are anxious that those in the west of Scotland and with Gaelic connections should be aware of this event, and if anyone would wish to come they would be most welcome.’
