A photograph of Tommy and his friend Billy Giles inside the Maze prison. (The Maze prison, on the site of a former Royal Airforce station of Long Kesh on the outskirts of Lisburn in Northern Ireland, was used during the Troubles, a period of intercommunal violence and strife which lasted for approximately 3 decades from the 1960s to 1998, when the Good Friday Agreement ended outright hostilities, to house paramilitary prisoners. It was closed in 2000 and partly demolished.) Tommy's comment on the picture: 'Me and Billy Giles in his cell. Billy later committed suicide after his release. God bless Billy.'.
