Shot at her home, Flora Street, off Beersbridge Road, Belfast. Her Catholic husband was the intended target.

Hi
   Thanks for the info. about Frankie Hawkins and Eugene Quigley- two of my best mates . Glad Quig got out of it and hope he is doing well.  Hawky went to Lenadoon. He lived in Omeath St. Quig and I stayed on the Woodstock /Cregagh  long after all our friends had gone- eventually they caught up with both our families.Here for anyone's interest is the class of 66/67. so far as I remember. Vinty taught us . It was a mixed class so there could have been about 18 months between oldest and youngest. Sorry have to teach. Will post list soon.
