This is my mother, Maura Meehan, 30 years old, unarmed and executed by Royal Green Jackets (British Army) for daring to protest the introduction of internment without trial on the 23rd of October, 1971, during the occupation of crown forces in Belfast, North of Ireland. Her nineteen year old sister, Dorothy Maguire was murdered alongside her, the investigation claimed both bodies had gunshot residue on them, this is a fact due to the fact they were shot point blank in the back of the head and shouldn’t imply they were enemy combatants, yet to this day the investigation has been shelved in the need to not undermine national security and avoid embarrassment and justice for our families, the victors write history from their perspective deny human rights to the innocent, our struggle for truth will never end , one day we can say now you can both rest in peace. Amen.
With many thanks to: Gerard Meehan.
BEAUTIFUL AND BRAVE MAURA MEEHAN AGED 3O
Cummann na mban
Murdered for standing up for her people and country. She was shot at close range by British soldiers, along with her 19 year old sister Dorothy Maguire.
The women were unarmed.
The truth is known.
Another crime of the Crown.
Another shame of England.
Another 2 reasons to demand accountability.
