Barron report to be studied

The second Barron  report into various atrocities which took place at the heart of the Troubles over 30 years ago will be brought before the cabinet this month. Mr Justice Henry Barron investigated the Dublin bombings of 1972 and 1973 as well as other pre-1974 bombings and the murders of Brid Carr, Oliver Boyce and Brid Porter. The report was published in June. Taoiseach Bertie Ahern told the Dail its findings would be studied shortly and announced he had received the report into the murder of Seamus Ludlow in Co Louth in 1976. He expressed hopes that if the two reports are pushed through government by Christmas a joint committee could deal with both early next year. Mr Ahern also told the Dail he had recommended the establishment of a Weston Park style inquiry into the 1974 Dublin and Monaghan bombings to Tony Blair and was awaiting an official response.
