The Argus (Dundalk), 17 June 2005:

Ludlow inquest adjourned to autumn


The inquest into the death of Seamus Ludlow will get underway on September 5th, Coroner Mr. Ronan Maguire BL, confirmed on Monday.

He took receipt of the written submissions from the legal teams representing the Garda Commissioner and the Ludlow family regarding the scope of the matters which the inquest will be able to inquire into.

While the Garda who had dealt with the forensic investigations at the time of Mr. Ludlow's murder was now dead, he had received a report from the Garda Siochana ballistic team. Mr. Maguire undertook to supply a copy of that report to Mr. MacGuill, solicitor, who acts for the Ludlow family.

Mr. Maguire said the full inquest hearing was due to start on Monday 5th September. He would consider the submissions and if anything arose he would write to both parties at the same time.

There would, he noted, be a lot of case law to be reviewed.

He adjourned the hearing until September 5th unless anything arose out of the submissions.

Mr. MacGuill asked for liberty to reply to points made in the submissions for the Garda Commissioner and Mr. Maguire said both sides would have liberty to reply.
