She was imprisoned in 1976 (aged 19) for carrying out the bombing of a hotel were members of the British forces were staying. In 1986 she was released from prison and returned to active service with the IRA. While on a mission in Gibraltar to carry out an attack against British soldiers, she and her two comrades were murdered by the SAS. The SAS operation was called "Operation Flavius". She was only 31 when she died. To the people of the Falls Road she was a patriot, a hero. To the British she was a terrorist.
