Hearings into report on Dundalk bombing to begin in September

The Oireachtas Justice Committee says its hearings on the Barron Report into the 1975 Dundalk bombing will begin in late September. The report published yesterday evening failed to find conclusive evidence of British security force collusion in the attack, which claimed the lives of two local men. 60-year-old Hugh Watters and 51-year-old Jack Rooney died in the attack outside Kay's Tavern on Crowe Street on December 19th 1975. Committee Chairman Sean Ardagh said serious questions have been raised about the forensic investigation and the level of co-operation from the RUC. Speaking afterwards, Hugh Watter's daughter Margaret English said that over the past 31 years the families have been shown no respect.
