Remember Irelands Patriot Dead

16th August 1973, Óglaigh:
Daniel McAnallen.
Patrick Quinn.
Pasty and Dan were part of an Active Service Unit which attacked Pomeroy RUC barracks. The attack lasted for almost 20 minutes, during which the barracks was raked with fire from 3 positions and pounded with mortars from a 4th. During the operation a rocket launcher misfired and killed Pasty and Dan Mc Anallen. Due to the heavy fire from the RUC barracks, Patsy and Dan’s bodies were placed in a shelter at Best’s Crossroads.
