The Dundalk Democrat, 24 October 1998:
Ludlow file sent to DPP
It is believed that a file on the 1976 murder of Mountpleasant man Seamus Ludlow has been sent to the Director of Public Prosecutions in Northern Ireland, writes Anne-Marie Eaton.
Earlier this year four men were detained in Castlereagh, Belfast in relation to the murder of Seamus who was shot dead near his home at Thistlecross, Mountpleasant. Following their release, it was reported that a file was being prepared for the DPP.
It is thought that the file was sent on Monday last, 19th October.
Gerry Adams interest
The family of Seamus Ludlow met with Gerry Adams on his recent visit to Dundalk. They spoke about the investigations into who was responsible for the murder which, according to Paul Hosking, an eye witness, was carried out by UDR members with links also to the loyalist paramilitary group the Red Hand Commandos.
A member of the Ludlow family, speaking to this reporter, said that Mr Adams had said he had read about the case and that from a personal view he would help in any way he could.
In recent times both family members and civil rights groups have been in contact with politicians from both North and South of Ireland and also England, in relation to investigations.
