      Fallen Comrades of the Irish Republican Socialist Movement

      *******

      Emmanuel Gargan
      Volunteer - Irish National Liberation Army
      Assassinated on 21 March 1987

      Emmanuel Gargan, age 25, was killed in a South Belfast pub by an
      Irish People's Liberation Organisation gunman in retaliation for the
      INLA's execution of IPLO leader Gerard Steenson on March 15th. Gargan
      had survived two earlier attempts on his life by the IPLO, and was
      still on crutches from the second attempt when he was killed.

      A memorial to Gargan and other comrades was dedicated in the Markets
      area of South Belfast on 11 May 2003.

      *******

      Kevin Barry Duffy
      Volunteer - Irish National Liberation Army
      Assassinated on 21 March 1987

      Kevin Barry Duffy, age 20, was killed in Armagh City by the Irish
      People's Liberation Organisation in retaliation for the INLA's
      execution of IPLO leader Gerard Steenson on March 15th.

      *******

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

      Gargan and Duffy were both involved in the INLA's efforts to defend
      itself and the Irish Republican Socialist Party from the IPLO's
      attacks.

      They died as they lived: as Republican Socialists. Remember them with
      honour and pride.
