The Argus, 3 May 2002 (Extract):

File still opened on Ludlow murder - Commissioner

by Olivia Ryan

The establishment of a public inquiry into the 1974 Dublin/Monaghan and Dundalk bombings was met with full co-operation from Gardai, according to Garda Commissioner, Pat Byrne, who was the invited guest at the Dundalk Chamber of Commerce Business lunch on Friday last.

Speaking at a press conference after the lunch, the Commissioner said that Gardai were assisting the Justice Barron inquiry in every way possible.

He confirmed that Liaison officers from Garda Siochana were working with Justice Barron on his inquiry, and that Gardai were co-operating fully with his public investigation.

The Commissioner was also quizzed on progress being made in the investigation into the death of local man, Seamus Ludlow in 1976, for which he said "no one has been brought to justice."

He stated that this was a case which remained open and under investigation by Gardai.
