The Argus (Dundalk weekly), 4 November 2005:
Barron report into Ludlow murder due in few weeks
Taoiseach Bertie Ahern has told the Dail that the Barron Report into the murder of Seamus Ludlow is likely to be published in the next few weeks.
Mr Ludlow's body was found dumped at Mountpleasant, after he was picked up by a UVF gang in Dundalk in the summer of 1976.
Members of the Gardai are expected to come in for criticism in the report for the manner in which the investigation was handled.
It is understood that the delay in publishing the report arose from difficulties in identifying then members of the gardai who were implicated in the case, and are still living.
The Dail also heard how the Government's legal advisor, the Attorney General, Rory Brady is studying the legal possibility of taking action against British and European courts over the 1974 Dublin and Monaghan bombings.
