      Fallen Comrade of the Irish Republican Socialist Movement

      Thomas Trainor
      Member - Irish Republican Socialist Party
      Staff Officer - Irish National Liberation Army
      Assassinated on 8 March 1978

      Thomas Trainor, aged 29, was shot by a loyalist Ulster Volunteer Force
      gunman on a motorcycle while walking along the Armagh Road in
      Portadown with his brother Frankie and a friend, Denis Kelly (who was
      also killed in the attack). Three thousand people attended his funeral.

      He was threatened by the Royal Ulster Constabulary on numerous
      occasions, including being told that the British Army's Special Air
      Service would get him.

      His brother Ronnie (an INLA volunteer) and their mother Dorothy were
      both murdered by loyalists in 1975.

      He died as he lived: a Republican Socialist. Remember him with honour
      and pride.
