My former Captain, Robert Nairac GC, paid with his life and ensured the peace that Northern Ireland enjoys today

22nd May 2018
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. The IRA later put out a statement saying he had been shot. Despite wide-ranging searches at the time, his body has never been found. He was 28.
