The Dundalk Democrat, 6 December 2006:

Dundalk bombing news special: Reports by Anne Marie Eaton

Case gets attention it deserves

Pictured L-R: Margaret English and Maura McKeever, daughters of the victims of the Dundalk bombing.What was once a story very few journalists wanted to touch, has become front page news throughout the country, Maura McKeever said.

"In the beginning of our efforts to get the truth for our families, very few people wanted to talk to us, and in the early days of the Barron Report we were probably looked on as a more minor case but I do feel we are getting a lot more attention now.

"The Barron Report could only go so far but the Oireachtas Committee seem to have taken us even further and given the Dundalk bombing the prominence it deserves."

It apparently seems that the country's press has also woken up to the injustices suffered by both the Rooney and Watters families.

After the Oireachtas Committee issued their report, a press frenzy ensued.

"I couldn't believe that the bombing was the number one story for RTE 1 radio also.

"It is really getting the attention it deserves right now and we hope that this will continue until we finally get the truth we all deserve."
