Draft List of Deaths Related to the Conflict in 2019

The following page has been compiled by Martin Melaugh to complement the Index of Deaths (1969-2001) by Malcolm Sutton. The information below is in draft form and should be treated with some caution. Some of the deaths listed below may be shown later to be unrelated to the conflict.

Lyra McKee (29) Catholic
Status: Civilian (Civ), Killed by:[new] Irish Republican Army (IRA)
Reporter. Shot while observing a riot, standing beside an armoured PSNI Land Rover, Fanad Drive, Creggan, Derry. [McKee was standing with a group of civilian onlookers when a gunman fired a number of shots at the police (See: BBC). On the 23 April 2019 The Irish News reported that it had received a statement from the 'new' IRA admitting responsibility for the killing (See: The Irish News). The IRA also offered 'sincere apologies' for her death.]

On the 28 January 2019 The Irish News received a statement from the UVF denying that the killing was done in the name of the UVF (See: The Irish News). On 31 January 2019, the PSNI said that one line of inquiry was that members of east Belfast UVF were involved (See: BBC).]
