The World

January 21, 1987

Two men blamed for terrorist crimes in Northern Ireland were shot and killed in the Irish Republic as they drank tea with two companions, both of whom were wounded in the attack, police said. The two gunmen escaped from the Rosnaree Hotel in Drogheda, 30 miles from Dublin. The dead men were identified as Thomas Power, 32, and John O'Reilly, 26, both of whom were linked to the outlawed Irish National Liberation Army. There was speculation that the shooting resulted from a feud within the INLA, a splinter movement of the Irish Republican Army.
