The Celtic League, 31 January 2001:

CELTIC LEAGUE - PRESS INFORMATION



LUDLOW MURDER - PROPOSALS SOON



The Department of Justice, in Dublin, has said that the Minister for
Justice John O'Donoghue, TD "hopes to put proposals to...the Irish
Government as soon as possible" to end the impasse over an enquiry
into the murder of Sťamus Ludlow.

The Celtic League had added its voice to calls for an independent
enquiry into the murder of the Co. Louth forestry worker in 1976.

Mr. Ludlow was killed in an apparently sectarian attack by a Loyalist
paramilitary gang. Controversy has surrounded to brutal killing for
many years and there is believed to have been knowledge of or complicity
in the killing by the British Security Services.

Following requests from the Ludlow family, the Celtic League wrote
to the Irish Premier, Bertie Ahern, backing calls for a public enquiry
in line with their wishes. Parallel correspondence to the Northern
Secretary querying the extent of British Security Services collusion
prompted an ambivalent response via the RUC. 

It is hoped that the Irish government will move soon to resolve the
inertia around the case.

Bernard Moffatt
