Yes it did happen but thank God
nobody was killed.Two RUC officers
were on a fishing trip to Westport
and were shot at opposite the old
Gaeity Ballroom when returning
back to the North.Two local men
who assisted the ambushers with
location,and transport were later
arrested,and jailed.It's
said that some bullet markes can
be seen on the Gaeity building.
There were protests outside the
Castlebar Courthouse while their
trial was on.
