In 1940 German prisoner of war Hans Marschner managed to see his way out of Mountjoy, only to be recaptured; in 1943 a young girl eating breakfast was surprised by twenty-one men emerging in her coal shed from the tunnel that had brought them out of Derry prison; the 'Magnificent Seven' grabbed world headlines in 1972 when they swam to freedom from the prison ship The Maidstone; in 1973 an astonishing escape occurred at Mountjoy when three prisoners were picked up by helicopter from the exercise yard in broad daylight; in 1974 Kenneth Littlejohn escaped in strange circumstances from Mountjoy; and then there was the escape from the high-security Maze prison in 1983, involving an incredible thirty-eight prisoners!
