Patsy Gillespie

“Civilian, husband and father” Patsy Gillespie worked as a cook at a British Army base in Londonderry. On October 24th, 1990, he was abducted from his Shantallow home and forced to drive a van loaded with 1,000 pounds of explosives to the base at Coshquin, where it killed five British Army soldiers and Patsy himself (WP). The stone “presented by the soldiers” is opposite the bar on the Buncrana Road.
