The brutal IRA killing of 10 innocent Protestant workmen took place on the 5 January 1976 in County Armagh.

Gunmen, which included Omagh bomber Colm Murphy, stopped a mini bus carrying eleven Protestant workmen. The sectarian IRA gang then placed the innocent men up against the mini bus and shot them all. One victim, Alan Black, survived despite being shot 18 times.

A Historical Enquiries Team report confirmed that the sectarian slaughter was carried out simply because the victims were Protestants. The weapons used were linked to upwards of 110 other sectarian attacks.

No one has ever been convicted of their role in the sectarian slaughter, despite the identity of many of the gunmen being widely known.

The innocent victims of the IRA’s sectarian attack, including survivor Alan Black, are as follows;

John Bryans (46)

Robert Chambers (19)

Reginald Chapman (25)

Walter Chapman (23)

Robert Freeburn (50)

Joseph Lemmon (46)

John McConville (20)

James McWhirter (58)

Robert Walker (46)

Kenneth Worton (24)

Alan Black (Survivor)

 


Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading the Unionist Voice than ever but unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can.

The Unionist Voice is editorially independent, meaning we set our own agenda. Our journalism is free from commercial bias. No one edits our Editor. No one steers our opinion. This is important because it enables us to give a voice to the voiceless, challenge the powerful and hold them to account. It’s what makes us different to so many others in the media, at a time when factual, honest reporting is critical.

f everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as £1, you can support the Unionist Voice– and it only takes a minute. Thank you.

    A lot of what you claim happens to be supprisingly appropriate and it makes me wonder why I had not looked at this in this light before. This article truly did switch the light on for me as far as this particular subject matter goes. Nevertheless at this time there is 1 point I am not really too comfortable with and while I make an effort to reconcile that with the actual core idea of your point, permit me see exactly what the rest of your subscribers have to say.Very well done.
