Daily Ireland, 13 July 2006:
Justice Group seeks advice
By David Lynch
Justice for the Forgotten is planning to meet its lawyers before the end of the week, to discuss the new Barron report.
The group that campaigns for families who have lost loved ones in bombings in the Republic in the 1970s, had hoped to meet their lawyers last Monday.
However this meeting has now been re-scheduled.
The group is not clear what legal avenue, if any, it will go down, following the publication of the report.
The report published last week was based on the findings of Mr Justice Henry Baron into a loyalist bombing in Dundalk in 1975.
The report says the actions of the northern security forces allowed a climate to develop where loyalists believed they could attack Catholics "with impunity".
The report also contains references to other incidents that were brought to the attention of the inquiry, including bombs in Castleblayney, Dublin Airport, Silverbridge and the Miami Showband murders.
On December 19 1975, a loyalist car bomb exploded on the street outside the Kay's Tavern pub in Dundalk at 6.22 pm, two men died and 14 were injured in the bombing.
The men died just a few hours before another deadly attack on Donnelly's bar, at nearby Silverbridge, Co Armagh, in which loyalists killed three men.
