Track now playing..."LOUGHGALL MARTYRS" from album "FREEDOM'S WALK" by "SAOIRSE".

  

On the 8th of May 1987, 8 Volunteers from the East Tyrone Brigade of Oglaigh Na h' Éireann were ambushed and murdered in a "Shoot to Kill" operation jointly carried out by the S.A.S. and the R.U.C's Special Patrol Group, in the County Armagh village of Loughgall. It was the largest single loss of life sustained by the Republican Movement since 1921 and The War of Independence.

Loughgall Martyrs (G.O'Glacain)

1

I'd sung so many songs of fallen heros

I really thought that I had said it all

But if a song can fill our hearts & raise our spirits

Then we'll sing about our martyr's at Loughgall

Well the Irish nation bowed her head in sorrow

Such sadness had our country seldom known

For Monaghan had lost a gallant soldier

With seven Volunteers from green Tyrone

CHORUS

england do you really think it's over

If you do your going to have to kill us all

For until you take your butchers out of Ireland

We will make them rue the blood spilled at Loughgall

2

It was on a warm & misty Friday evening

The scent of apple blossoms filled the air

That village street seemed quiet & deserted

But hidden brits were watching everywhere

Well the digger bomb had only reached it's target

When the trap was sprung & gunfire filled the air

The s.a.s. did not want any prisoners

"Shoot to kill" their orders were quite clear

CHORUS

3

Well they murdered eight brave Volunteers  that evening

They were kicked & punched in case they were not dead

Then they dragged them up & down that Armagh village

And they pumped their bodies full with english lead

Did they think it would teach us all a lesson

At such savagery the whole world was appalled

Oh dont you know there are twenty more men waiting

For every one you murdered at Loughgall

CHORUS

4

Farewell to Paddy Kelly & Jim Lynagh

No more you'll lead your fighting unit forth

Side by side with Pádraig McKearney & Tony Gormley 

You died to drive the english from the North

With Declan Arthurs & the youthful Seamus Donnelly

On that night you were the youngest of them all

Gerry O'Callaghan & the gallant Eugene Kelly

Your blood still stains the pavements at Loughgall

CHORUS
