The Argus (Dundalk), 10 April 2006:
Ludlows met Asst. Cmmr.
Senior Gardai, including Assistant Garda Commissioner Martin Callinan, met with members of the Ludlow family in Dundalk last Thursday.
The meeting took place in the office of the family's solicitor Mr James McGuill just two days after the 30th anniversary of the murder of 47 year old Seamus Ludlow near his home at Feede Cross.
It followed from the Final Report of the Joint Oireachtas Sub-Committee which recommended the setting up of a Commission of Inquiry and the re-opening of the investigation into the murder.
Mr Jimmy Sharkey, a nephew of the murdered forestry worker, says that the presence of Assistant Commissioner Callinan at the meeting indicates how seriously the Gardai are treating the matter.
However, he stressed that the family, who have repeatedly called for a public inquiry into their uncle's murder and the subsequent investigation, have concerns as to how the new investigation can proceed without fresh evidence.
"We still have to decide whether we will cooperate with (the) Commission of Inquiry," he aid, adding that the Gardai are to report back to the family in six weeks time.
