  Photographs 4

Photograph: Kevin Ludlow, examines press coverage of his brother's murder.Right: In this photograph Kevin Ludlow examines newspaper coverage of his late brother's murder in May 1976. Kevin, the only surviving brother of Seamus, has been active for many years in searching for the truth behind his brother's murder and the failure of the Gardai to bring the killers to justice. On many occasions he was told lies by Gardai in Dundalk.

The headline "Santa No Clue", comes from the Sunday World and it made reference to Seamus Ludlow's local reputation as a popular Santa Claus in the Dundalk area at Christmas time. See also Seamus as Santa, on page 3.


Seamus Ludlow's grave at Calvary Cemetery, Ravensdale.Right: In this photograph Kevin Ludlow and Jimmy Sharkey are standing in front of Seamus Ludlow's grave at Ravensdale. See also photograph on page 3.

Seamus is buried beside his late mother and father, Annie and James Ludlow. James predeceased his murdered son in January 1967, while Annie Ludlow lived on until January 1978, never knowing the true facts of her son's death.
