Daniel Loughran
Assassinated by the OIRA on 5 April 1975

20 year old expert marksman and former soldier in the Irish Army, Danny Loughran joined the Republican Socialist Movement at its inception, having been a member of the OIRA prior to that. He was assassinated by the OIRA close to his home in the Divis Flats.

It was believed he was killed by OIRA man Eamon "Hatchet" Kerr.

Given a paramilitary funeral with members of the People's Liberation Army (a broader paramilitary grouping than the INLA, formed to defend the IRSM from OIRA attacks) a volley of shots was fired over his coffin. He was a "staff officer" of the INLA, though "PLA" was carved into his gravestone in Milltown Cemetary.

At his funeral, an IRSP spokesperson said "There are not enough bullets in Cyprus Street or in Gardiner Place (OIRA addresses in Belfast and Dublin) to kill the dream for which he died."
