The Dundalk Bombing


The Newry Democrat, 25 January 2006:

Bereaved families welcome investigation team
 


Two south Armagh families who lost loved ones to loyalist terrorists have cautiously welcomed the establishment a new team to investigate unsolved murders over the last 30 years.

The Historical Enquiries Team has been set up to re-examine over 3,000 unsolved murders during the Troubles - but for two local families, the news has come 30 years late. Eugene Reavey's three brothers were murdered at their Whitecross home by the UVF in 1976. He has always claimed security force collusion in the triple murder and said, that while he wants the authorities to track down those responsible, he does not want the killers to go to jail.

"I don't think that would serve any purpose," he said. "If you talk about closure, as the

Secretary of State has been talking about in this bill, closure for us doesn't mean some piece of legislation. Closure means that we know who killed them.

"The dogs in the street know who killed my brothers but the authorities seem to have some hindrance in their way to stop them going and prosecuting these people."

The day after the Reavey murders, 10 Protestant workmen were killed by republicans at Kingsmills.

Bea Wharton, whose son Kenneth was amongst those shot dead, said she just wants justice.

"We want to hear the truth - how it happened and who did it," she said.

"You go from day to day and you don't know who has done it. You could be talking to the ones that did it yet don't know.

"You just want to see some truth. The truth never hurts and it always comes out in the end."

Meanwhile, the family of a Dundalk man killed by loyalist paramilitaries in 1979 at Ravensdale are pushing for a full public inquiry in to his murder.

Seamus Ludlow was abducted outside Dundalk and shot dead almost 25 years ago.

An Oireachtas sub-committee will today (Tuesday) launch hearings into a report into the murder compiled by a former Supreme Court Judge, Mr Justice Henry Barron.
