An Phoblacht/Republican News, 14 October 1999:

Relatives demand justice

By Tara O'Liath

A new elatives group, Border Relatives, was launched earlier this week at a press conference in Dublin.

Border Relatives represents five families of victims of loyalist attacks along the border, mainly in Louth and Monaghan, throughout the 1970s.

These attacks, in which four people were killed and 34 were injured, were carried out by known loyalists from Down and Armagh, none of whom have ever been charged.

The Border Relatives will work closely with Justice for the Forgotten, the group representing relatives of the 1974 Dublin and Monaghan bombings.

While the group welcomed the Dublin government's interest and cooperation with the various families, they had reservations about the prospect of the private inquiry that has been announced in relation to the Dublin and Monaghan bombings. They called for public sworn inquiries into all such cases.

Speaking at the conference on behalf of the Border Relatives were Maura McKeever, Gerard Watters, James Sharkey, Anna McEnaneney and Peter O'Connor, all of whom have lost relatives. Also present was journalist Joe Tiernan, who has been involved with researching and reporting the cases.

Speaking to An Phoblacht, James Sharkey said he was disappointed at the sparse media turnout and by TDs, but said he was encouraged by Sinn Fein TD Caoimhghin O Caolain's attendance and said the organisation was grateful for his ongoing interest.
