      Fallen Comrade of the Irish Republican Socialist Movement

      Mickey Kearney
      Volunteer - Irish National Liberation Army
      Assassinated on 18 February 1987

      Mickey "Streetwise" Kearney, age 33 and a father of five, was
      ambushed and murdered by the Irish People's Liberation Organisation
      after he slipped out of hiding to visit his wife and children in
      Ballymurphy, West Belfast.

      He had been released from prison before Christmas 1986 after charges
      against him were withdrawn because the appeals judge rejected an
      informer's testimony. After Kearney's release, he was placed on a hit
      list by the IPLO, which forced him to go into hiding.

      The IPLO was a counter-revolutionary group formed by individuals who
      had resigned or been purged from the IRSM, who then came together to
      destroy the IRSM.

      A memorial to Kearney and another comrade was unveiled in the New
      Barnsley area of West Belfast on 20 January 2003.

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