Ludlow family wait nears an end
By Anne Marie Eaton
Relatives of the late Seamus Ludlow are on the verge of finding out if their latest efforts to hold a public inquiry into his May 1976 murder has been successful.
A report on the Oireachtas Hearings held in February is to be published imminently and the family remain optimistic that those on the Oireachtas Committee will be sympathetic to their call although fears have previously been voiced that a Commission of Enquiry could be favoured.
Speaking on the eve of the report's publication, Seamus' nephew Jimmy Sharkey said that the family continue to have a positive attitude.
"We received the call on Monday afternoon to say that the report will be made public at 4pm on wednesday,
"The report will be released to us an hour earlier at 3pm".
Hearings into Seamus' murder ran for a number of weeks in February. During that time the Committee heard from former gardai involved in the murder investigation as well as Minister for Justice Michael McDowell, former TD Brendan McGahon, Justice Henry Barron who wrote the initial report into Seamus' murder and journalist Ed Moloney who interviewed a man who admitted to being an eye witness to the murder.
Members of the Ludlow family including Seamus' brother Kevin and sisters Nan and Eileen attended every day of the hearings.
Throughout the hearings the Ludlow family have remained staunchly in favour of the public inquiry despite rumours of a possible Commission of Inquiry.
