Letters to the editor:

Question on Dundalk bombing

The last week before Christmas each year is meant to be filled with joy and happiness, however for a lot of people in Dundalk it is also a reminder of the bomb that exploded 30 years ago outside "Kay's Tavern" on December 19 1975.

Two local men, Jack Rooney (60) and Hughie Watters (51) were killed and many others were injured in this murderous attack on the people of Dundalk.

Loyalist perpetrators planted the bomb and still to this day they have never been brought to justice.

Although I was not born at the time I have looked into the attack and the one question that keeps coming into my mind is that at a time when there was a high presence of military on the border, how did a "Loyalist Death Squad" get over and back without getting stopped?

It is my firm belief that this could not have been done without the help and support of the British forces.

Collusion (state sponsored murder) is a reality and it is time for the truth to come out.

Eugene Garvey
