The Irish Independent, 5 October 2006:

15pc of UDR ranks were loyalist paramilitaries

 

Up to 15pc of the British Army's Ulster Defence Regiment (UDR) were members of loyalist paramilitary groups, a Dail Committee heard yesterday, writes Anita Mullen.

The Select Committee considering the findings of the Barron report on the 1975 Dundalk bombing heard how a report from 1973, entitled 'Subversion in the UDR', said that military intelligence officers estimated that five to 15pc of UDR members were linked to loyalist groups.

The statistics were referred to by Paul O'Connor of the Pat Finucane Centre for human rights and social change.

Mr O'Connor told the committee the regiment was described as the "best single source of weapons'' for loyalist paramilitaries.

The report will be published and the committee will report back to the Oireachtas on November 17.
