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)
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
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
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
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
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
