Three masked gunmen have fired a volley of shots over the coffin of former INLA prisoner and IRSP activist Seamus ‘Chang’ Coyle this morning.
The coffin was outside the wakehouse in Rosemount Gardens when three uniform and masked gunmen fired up to a dozen shots into the air. The gunmen disappeared back into the nearby streets.
His funeral cortage then left for 10am Mass at St Mary’s Church in Fanad Drive, Creggan, before burial in City Cemetery.
The Starry Plough flag was displayed over his coffin as it made it’s way to the Cemetery.
Chang died at the weekend after a short illness.
