Barron meets relatives of man killed by UDA

February 23, 2004

(20:40) Members of the family of a Co Louth forestry worker killed by the UDA in 1976 met with Mr Justice Henry Barron today in Dundalk.

The family of Seamus Ludlow have been pressing for a full public inquiry into the circumstances surrounding his murder 28 years ago at the hands of the UDA.

It is widely believed there was collusion from elements of the British military in his death.

Mr Justice Barron told the family that he hoped to be able to publish his investigation into Mr Ludlow's murder later this year.

Meanwhile, the Louth County Coroner, Ronan McGuire, has confirmed that he expects to hold an inquest into Mr Ludlow's death within a matter of weeks.
