Marion Coyle was born in July 54 in Derry, Northern Ireland, and lived in the Duncreggan Road, a rather middle-class and fashionable area of Derry.. Coyle was a student in typing and advanced English at the time of the civil rights demonstrations and civil disorder which culminated in the Battle of the Bogside.. In his work, Hostage:Notorious Irish Kidnappings, Paul Howard notes that Coyle was a very quiet teenager "showing none of the qualities that would make her one of the IRA's most fearless and respected Volunteers.. On the night of the 26th June 70 her uncle Joe Coyle, who was a member of the IRA's Derry leadership, along with Thomas Carlin, Tommy McCool and his 2 young daughters died when a bomb they were preparing in the kitchen of Tommy McCool's house on the Creggan estate exploded prematurely..

On 3 October 1975 Coyle and another IRA member, Eddie Gallagher, kidnapped industrialist Tiede Herrema near his home in Castletroy, a suburb of Limerick.. They were traced to a house in Monasterevin, County Kildare, and a 2-week siege began.. Coyle and Gallagher demanded the release of 3 republican prisoners, including Rose Dugdale, in return for the release of Herrema, but the authorities refused to grant any concessions.. The siege ended on 7 November when Herrema was released, and Coyle and Gallagher were arrested..The kidnapping was the longest in Irish history..Eamonn McCann (23 October 2005)..
