Private William Larmour Kenny, 10th Battalion, the Ulster Defence Regiment

March 16, 2020

 

Remembering the Fallen: on this day in 1973, Private William Larmour Kenny, 10th Battalion, the Ulster Defence Regiment, was killed in Northern Ireland.
On the morning of his death, Private Kenny left his home to go to Girdwood Barracks in Belfast. His hijacking was witnessed – his car was stopped at gunpoint by two young men, then two others arrived and he was driven away. His body was found twelve hours later. He had been taken to a house where the woman resident was informed that they were the IRA and were taking over her house. They left after several hours, during which time the woman attended to Private Kenny who had head wounds. He was later shot in a house while the unknowing residents were at work, and left outside to be found by someone walking by. The following year, four men were convicted of holding Private Kenny prisoner.
William, from Ballymena, was 28 years old and married with an eighteen-month-old child.
