Crossfire Trust

Crossfire Trust

Crossfire Trust is a registered charity which cares for the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of the people, primarily in South Armagh, Northern Ireland.

The Trust was established in 1984 by four Trustees who had considerable experience volunteering in Crossmaglen and who wanted to develop further the links Ian Bothwell had made in the area since 1978.

At the height of 'The Troubles', Ian watched a TV documentary on the border town, Crossmaglen, which conveyed fear, isolation, community breakdown and the need for hope. In response to these scenes and the felt need, Ian travelled from his home at Tynan to remind the people of God and His love for them despite the religious and cultural barriers that existed between Tynan to Crossmaglen, and to convey ‘there is a God and He does love’.
