Columba McVeigh

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Columba McVeigh
Disappeared1 November 1975 (aged 17)
StatusMissing for 44 years, 1 month and 13 days

Columba McVeigh (1958 – 1 November 1975) was a youth from Northern Ireland who was abducted and murdered by the Provisional Irish Republican Army (IRA).[1] He was listed as one of the "Disappeared" by the Independent Commission for the Location of Victims' Remains.


A seventeen-year-old from Donaghmore, County Tyrone, McVeigh disappeared in November 1975. The IRA say he had confessed to being a British Army intelligence agent who had received orders to infiltrate the IRA's ranks,[2] but have never indicated what specific act prompted McVeigh's murder.[3] Unsuccessful searches were carried out for the location of his body in 2003, 2011 and 2012.[3] In September 2018 forensic archaeologists started searching Braggan Bog, near Emyvale.[4] That search ended without success in September 2019, having paused between November 2018 and June 2019. Senior investigator Joe Hill said, "If Columba had been here we would have found him."[5]
