Vol. James McPhilemy

“In memory of Vol. James McPhilemy, Irish National Liberation Army, killed on active service 10th August 1988. Throid sé agus fuair sé bás ar son mhuintir na hÉireann. [He fought and he died for the people of Ireland].” (This is the rare case when “active service” does not mean a premature bomb explosion.) There is also a memorial to McPhilemy in Strabane.
