Unquiet Graves: The story of the Glenanne Gang

IFI, Wednesday 13th March 2019

Unquiet Graves: The story of the Glenanne Gang, details how members of the RUC and UDR were centrally involved in the murder of over 120 innocent civilians during the recent conflict in Ireland. It will detail how members worked hand in hand with known sectarian murderers in the targeted assassinations of farmers, shopkeepers, publicans and other civilians, in a campaign aimed at terrorising the most vulnerable in society. Now known as the Glenanne Gang, the group of killers rampaged through Counties Tyrone and Armagh and across into the Irish Republic, in a campaign that lasted from July 1972 to the end of 1978.

After years of painstaking work by human rights groups, The Pat Finucane Centre and Dublin-based Justice for the Forgotten – and the subsequent release of Anne Cadwallader's best-selling book, Lethal Allies – the scale of collusion between the British government and loyalist death squads has now become apparent.
