Maura Meehan, one of two women who died in a shooting incident involving a British Army patrol in the Lower Falls area of Belfast, N Ireland. She was aged 31 years and married with 3 children. The woman who died with her was her sister, Dorothy Maguire, 19 years, single. Both were Roman Catholic and from West Belfast. It later emerged that they were members of Cumann na mBan, the Women's IRA, and were the first members of that organisation to die in the Troubles. The soldiers claimed that a gun was pointed at them from the car. It later transpired the women were sounding the car horn to warn of the presence of soldiers. 197110230424MM1..Copyright Image from Victor Patterson, 54 Dorchester Park, Belfast, UK, BT9 6RJ..Tel: +44 28 9066 1296.Mob: +44 7802 353836.Voicemail +44 20 8816 7153.Skype: victorpattersonbelfast.Email: victorpatterson@me.com.Email: victorpatterson@ireland.com (back-up)..IMPORTANT: If you wish to use this image or any other of my images please go to www.victorpatterson.com and click on the Terms & Conditions.
