The launch of the Steve Carroll Foundation on Monday paid tribute to young people committed to creating a shared future.

It was set up in remembrance of Constable Carroll, 48, who was shot dead while on duty in Craigavon, Co Armagh, in March 2009 by the Continuity IRA.

His widow Kate Carroll said the foundation would honour her late husband's memory and recognise those working towards peace.

Two students, Enya Doyle and Lauren Sloan, were awarded the first annual peace awards at the event.

They helped establish a cross-community social media movement lobbying for equality of sentencing in murder trials following the conviction of Mr Caroll's killers.

I promised Steve the day he was going down into the grave that I would never let his name be forgotten and that I would leave him something to be remembered by.

Kate Carroll

Launching the foundation, Mrs Carroll paid tribute to her husband as and said he was "passionately committed to helping young people".

"I want that commitment to be his legacy and this is why I am launching the Steve Carroll Foundation in his memory," she explained.

Ms Doyle, from Lurgan, Co Armagh, and Ms Sloan, from Banbridge, helped inspire a mass peace rally for peace following the murder of PSNI Constable Ronan Kerr by dissidents in 2011.
