Emmanuel Matt McClarnon
Killed in Action on 12 May 1981

Aged 21, Volunteer Matt McClarnon was shot and killed by army during rioting near his home at Massereene Row in the Divis Flats in the lower Falls area of west Belfast.

On active service at the time of his death, he had fired on soldiers a few hours after word had come out that Francis Hughes had died on hunger strike.

At his funeral, five INLA volunteers stepped from the hallway of St. Peter's Catholic Church and fired three volleys of shots in the air.
