It is widely accepted that on Saturday evening 14th May 1977 Captain Robert Nairac GC was undercover drinking and singing Republican folk songs in the Three Steps Inn in Dromintee, south Armagh. He was posing as a Catholic from the Ardoyne area of north Belfast.
 
As he left the bar at the end of the night, he was attacked in the car park and abducted. It is pretty much accepted that he was tortured before being brutally murdered by the IRA.
