The Examiner, 1 May 2001:

Ludlow family 'know name of the loyalist killer'

The family of Louth man Seamus Ludlow have renewed demands for a public inquiry into his death twenty-five years after his body was found on May 2nd 1976.

His nephew Michael Donegan and other relatives are alleging that the Garda and RUC may have been involved in a cross-border cover-up of the loyalist killers.

And a family spokesperson alleged they "knew the name of the loyalist killer who pulled the trigger."

"Twenty-five years have passed since that dreadful night when he was shot and dumped in this small laneway but Seamus Ludlow's family are no nearer to getting the truth and justice they deserve than they were then.

"We know the name of the loyalist killer who pulled the trigger; we know why he was in Co Louth that night and who was with him; we know that the Gardai knew all this not long after Seamus Ludlow was killed; we know that the RUC special branch had this information as well and we know that the authorities in this state behaved disgracefully to the Ludlow family.

"We know that they lied to and misled the family about who killed their brother and uncle. We know that they cruelly, deliberately divided the Ludlow's, pitching sibling against sibling, cousin against cousin for the best part of two decades, years that can never be recovered.

"We know enough about the circumstances of Seamus Ludlow's death to suspect that all this was done, all these lies and deceptions perpetrated in order to protect the gunman who killed Seamus Ludlow and to cover up both in the North and in this jurisdiction."
