Lord Louis Mountbatten, cousin to the Queen of England, had a favourite holiday spot.  It was Glassybourne House at Mullaghmore in Ireland.  Mountbatten was a naval war hero and the last Viceroy of India, the man who had supported Mahatma Ghandi’s bid for independence.

He thought he was safe there, believing he was well-loved locally, even though the Irish Republican Army was attacking prime targets in order to force Britain out of Northern Ireland.

On the morning of August 27th 1979 Lord Mountbatten’s motor boat was blown to pieces by an IRA bomb, killing him and three others  However, the IRA had not finished their operations in the area on that day: a second attack, by the same IRA group, would kill 18 British soldiers at Warren Point, just hours later. A Film by Hans-Rüdiger Minow.
