The Argus (Dundalk), 6 May 2005:
Seamus Ludlow Inquest

The Louth County Coroner has confirmed that a preliminary hearing will be held in May into the death of Seamus Ludlow, who was murdered not far from his Mountpleasant home in 1976.

Ronan Maguire revealed that the initial hearing is set to take place on a date yet to be confirmed over the next few weeks. A full inquest will take place at a later date.

He added that the hearing will focus mainly on legal argument in order to explore the scope of the inquest, and will involve members of the Ludlow family and garda representatives.

The original inquest took place in August 1976 with no members of the Ludlow family present, as they were not told in time.

Mr Ludlow was a 47-year-old local man who was walking home from a pub when he was allegedly murdered by four loyalists in north Louth.
