The Murder of Seamus Ludlow in County Louth, May 1976. Towards a public inquiry?
The Irish Daily Star, 7 September 2005:
'UDA' Murder Probe Call
By Elaine Keogh
A family renewed calls for a full public inquiry into the death of a forestry worker said to have been murdered by loyalist paramilitaries nearly 30 years ago - after an inquest jury decided yesterday he was unlawfully killed.
The family of Seamus Ludlow (47) of Culfore, Mountpleasant, Co Louth, highlighted claims during the two-day inquest - the second into the killing - that gardai did not act on information passed on by an officer who said the RUC had given him the names and addresses of the killers.
Dundalk Coroner's Court also heard that two of the four suspects had made admissions of involvement in the killing after being arrested by the RUC in 1998 - but that officials in the North decided against any prosecutions.
Mr Ludlow was said to have been shot to death in the back of a car after four UDA members picked him up as he walked towards his home just north of Dundalk on May 1, 1976.
Louth Sinn Fein TD Arthur Morgan, who was at yesterday's hearing, backed the Ludlow family's call for "a full sworn public inquiry."
