Eamonn McDevitt

“This marks the spot where Eamonn McDevitt, deaf mute aged 28 years, was murdered by Royal Marine Commandos 18th August 1971. May he rest in peace.” McDevitt was killed in Fountain Street, Strabane, after an anti-internment march. The Army claimed he was waving a gun; his family deny this and have been lobbying for an inquiry and apology since then (Derry Journal | BBC-NI).
