Over 200 people gathered for this moving ceremony hosted by the Ludlow family. People came from Dundalk, Dublin, Belfast, Derry, Cavan and from throughout the border counties area to share with the Ludlow family a few moments in memory of the man who was murdered at this spot near the border.

The Ludlow family deeply appreciated the attendance of good friends and neighbours from both sides of the border: Mountpleasant, Ravensdale, Faughart, Dromintee, Jonesborough and elsewhere. 

Also present were relatives of the late Jack Rooney and Hugh Watters who were murdered by a no-warning Loyalist bomb in Dundalk on 19 December 1975; by the family of Patrick Mowhan, who was similarly murdered by a Loyalist bomb in Castleblaney, County Monaghan. Present also were members of Justice for the Forgotten, the group that represents most of the victims' relatives and survivors of the Dublin and Monaghan bombings.

The Ludlow family was also delighted to have with them the family of the late Aidan McAnespie, who was murdered by British forces at Aughnacloy as he walked peacefully across the border to attend a Gaelic football match. Also present was a son of the late Maura Drumm, the Vice President of Sinn Fein, who was murdered in her Mater Hospital bed by Loyalists in 1976. Mrs. Drumm was actually born just a short distance away from the Ludlow home, though she spent much of her life in Belfast.
