When police arrested colleagues in a round up he went on the run back to Ireland where he received training in the south and was sent to Derry. He was arrested in a raid on a call house in November where weapons were recovered and was subsequently jailed in the notorious Long Kesh prison later renamed the Maze where he stayed until September and where he took part in hunger strikes.
