Subject: Vol. Colin Maguire-Memorial

Vol. Colin Maguire, INLA, MEMORIAL PLAN

Colin Maguire left a secure job as a postman n Liverpool in the 1980s. For some time he had intended to volunteer his services to the Irish Republican Socialist Movement, and discussed the possibilities with his most trusted friends. Eventually after making ‘soundings’ he arrived in the Six Occupied Counties, and having a distinct Liverpool accent, must have caused him problems, for “friend” and “foe” alike.. He resided chiefly in Belfast. Amid a degree of controversy, towards the end of the ‘80s Colin died in jail, in the 26 Counties, where he had been involved in a number of protests against conditions.

He was well known in Liverpool within the Irish community, and was an active supporter of really any group which offered solidarity to the Irish cause, particularly the Troops Out Movement. If there was a meeting on Ireland in Liverpool, or nearby, or a major demo in London, Colin was sure to be there, come hail, rain or snow.

Now some of his former comrades have plans to erect a memorial above his grave in Glasnevin Cemetery, Dublin, within the near future. The final details are expected to be announced soon, and will be circulated ASAP by interested groups and individuals.

Footnote:

Final details will be circulated soon by his widow Maureen and friends, in addition to:
