James McPhilemy
Volunteer - Irish National Liberation Army
Killed in Action on 10 August 1988

Aged 20, McPhilemy was part of a three-man INLA unit when he was
killed in action as they prepared to attack a British Army checkpoint
at Clady, Co. Tyrone.

He made himself vulnerable when he called out to warn children in the
area to get down. The British soldiers opened fire and killed him.

A memorial to McPhilemy and another comrade was unveiled in Strabane
on 10 August 2003.

He died as he lived: a Republican Socialist. Remember him with honour
and pride.
