The Dundalk Bombing

The Argus, 14 May 1999:

Ludlow family invited to lay wreath

The family of murder victim Seamus Ludlow have been invited to lay a wreath at a ceremony in Dublin this Sunday to mark the 25th Anniversary of the Dublin and Monaghan bombings.

Jimmy Sharkey, a nephew of Mr Ludlow, said there were no further developments at the moment in the family's campaign to find out who was responsible for his uncle's killing.

In February, public meetings were held in Dundalk and Dublin to highlight the case of the unmarried forestry worker who was murdered by a Loyalist gang close to his home on 1st/2nd May, 1976.

On those occasions a full independent public enquiry was called for as the Ludlow family sought to find out the truth about what happened that night.

The members of Mr. Ludlow's family want to know why the murder was covered up and who were the people being protected.

"There is nothing new and we haven't heard anything back," said Mr Sharkey.
