The Dundalk Bombing


Public hearings before the Irish parliamentary Joint Oireachtas Committee on Justice, Equality, Defence and Women’s Rights will commence tomorrow, Tuesday, 26th September on the above report.  As well as the bombing of Dundalk, that of Castleblayney, Dublin Airport, the railway line at Baronrath Bridge, Co. Kildare, the Miami Showband murders, the gun and bomb attack at Donnelly’s Bar, Silverbridge and several other atrocities in which collusion is suspected, will be included.

Family members and survivors of these atrocities will tell their own personal stories to the Committee at tomorrow’s session.  On Wednesday, 27th September, Justice for the Forgotten and the Pat Finucane Centre will appear before the Committee and give presentations based on their substantive written submissions already furnished to the Committee.

Justice for the Forgotten and the Pat Finucane Centre believe that it is now possible to make links between four attacks in this State in the two-year period from May 1974 to March 1976, which claimed the lives of 38 people and that it is also possible to make a very much stronger case for the existence of direct collusion in these cases than ever before.

The Ludlow family supports the campaign by the Rooney and Watters families of Dundalk for an inquiry into the murderous Dundalk Bombing of 19 December 1975 which resulted in the sectarian murder of Jack Rooney and Hugh Watters. 

A  Barron Report on this other sectarian attack in Dundalk, and other attacks along the border, was published 5 July 2006. An Oireachtas sub-committee will hold public hearings on the Dundalk bombing in September 2006.
