|The Klondyke Bar bombing|
Two men were jailed in relation to the bombing. Frank McGreevy spent 17 years in prison for various terrorist offences including the murder of John Smiley, the man who died in the Klondyke bombing. In 2008 McGreevy was himself murdered. Beaten to death at his home in west Belfast, the murder was not terror-related, although he was still given a Provo funeral at which Gerry Adams gave a eulogy. Adams said he had known the bomber since the early 1970s. McGreevy was 51 at the time of his death, four years younger than Mr Smiley was when he was blown up. Mr Smiley's daughter later told a newspaper that she had forgiven McGreevy for her father's murder, but felt that the attention given to McGreevy's death detracted from many of those who perished in the Troubles, including her father.
