This post goes outside the usual pre-1970 timeline for this blog (and will be controversial), but 1970 was unsatisfactory as an end date. Simply put, this is a combined list of Belfast’s republican dead, from 1966 to present, to follow on from the 1916-66 list (names are taken from various online sources, such as An Phoblacht, CAIN and Londain Republican’s blog). All those listed are those who were died during the conflict as a result of their involvement in a republican organisation and are given here without reference to rank, organisation etc.
This is a very rough first draft, I’ll produce an updated version (1916-2016) for Easter Sunday, so please correct any errors (particularly those not from Belfast) or suggest additions. Its not yet in full chronological order, either (so search for a name if you don’t see it), although I’ll correct the chronological order a.s.a.p.
