Thousands pay tribute to Strabane IRA Volunteers

25 February 2010

Several thousand people turned out at a commemoration parade in Strabane on Sunday to mark the 25th anniversary of the deaths of local IRA Volunteers Charlie Breslin (aged 20), and brothers Michael Devine (aged 22) and David Devine (aged 16), who were summarily executed by British State Forces in a pre-planned shoot-to-kill operation in a field overlooking the Head of the Town area of their hometown in the early hours of 23 February 1985. The parade was part of an extended weekend of events organised by the Breslin/Devine Commemoration Committee in conjunction with the Strabane Memorial Flute Band, which was formed by local people and friends of the three local IRA volunteers in the wake of their deaths.
