Lest we forget – the IRA murder of policeman Michael Ferguson

Today, 23.1.17, marks the 24th anniversary of the murder of 21 year old Police Constable Michael Ferguson outside the Richmond Shopping Centre in Londonderry, Northern Ireland.

The young policeman was murdered by a Provisional IRA gunman (that murderous organisation’s nickname was/is the Provos or PIRA.)

The gunman and those who planned the attack deserve the death penalty, or at the very least, life imprisonment, but that will never happen in “peace-process” (appeasement process more-like) Northern Ireland, a place in which evil terrorists (republican and loyalist) and their supporters and apologists are appeased and rewarded with  high office and/or money in the form of “community grants” to keep them and their respective communities “sweet” and “on board” the “peace process” train.

Today we want to remember heroes like police Constable Michael Ferguson and acknowledge his and their sacrifice with the words of one of the stanzas from the poem by Robert Laurence Binyon.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

One thought on “Lest we forget – the IRA murder of policeman Michael Ferguson

  1. Micky Ferguson was my best friend. He was a really kind, generous and a genuine nice guy. He was into keep fit, loved his weights training and the local leisure. He lived with his mum Kathleen who he adored. He was a gem, his only downfall was that he was too nice and had time for everyone. He was always chatty on his beat, calling into the local shops and chatting to the shop owners about their day in friendly conversation. In killing Micky the terrorists not only took his life but destroyed his mothers life too. Kathleen was a very outgoing lady who had a great personality. She was never the same after Hus death and died a broken woman who had no closure, no peace and no justice for her son’s death.
