On the 27th November, 1975 Guinness Book of Records co-founder and editor Ross McWhirter is shot dead outside his North London home. Police believe it may have been an IRA hit as Mr. McWhirter had offered a reward of £50,000 for information leading to the arrest of IRA bombers. The men responsible, Martin O'Connell, Edward Butler, Harry Duggan, and Hugh Doherty were arrested a fortnight later, and sentenced to life imprisonment. They were freed under the amnesty specified in the 1998 Good Friday Agreement. After Ross's death, Norris continued to edit the book into the 1980's.
