Ludlow family to meet Taoiseach

Confirmation of January meeting in Dublin

By Anne-Marie Eaton

Seamus Ludlow who was murdered by  British Army UDR/Red Hand Commandso killers in 1976.Relatives of murdered Mountpleasant man Seamus Ludlow will meet Taoiseach Bertie Ahern in Dublin later this month, it has been confirmed.

Seamus' nephew Jimmy Sharkey said this week that a meeting has been set for Tuesday January 22 at 10am.

Speaking on who to attend the meeting, Mr Sharkey said, "I expect that Seamus' brother Kevin and sisters Nan and Eileen will go to the meeting as well as his nephews including myself and of course our solicitor James McGuill."

Mr Sharkey said the family were also hoping that British Irish Rights Watch Director Jane Winters will be able to attend the meeting.

"I suppose that there may be some local public representatives there also, but really out of everyone that I would like to see there, Jane Winters' presence would be important.

"We are hoping that she can get a flight over for the meeting as she is involved in human rights but on an independent basis."

Ms Winters has attended previous meetings between government officials and the Ludlow family and in the late 1990s was involved in the compilation of a report into the 1976 shooting for British Irish Rights Watch.

In 2005 the Barron Report laid the blame for not apprehending his killers with the Gardai and also cited retired Commissioner Laurence Wren as the person who most likely halted the murder investigations.

Taoiseach Bertie Ahern: has at last agreed to meet with the Ludlow family on 22 January 2008. The family has been seeking such a meeting for several years. Why has it taken so long, Mr Ahern?Jimmy Sharkey said that while it was not known if the meeting would be successful in furthering the family's campaign, he added that it is important for Seamus' direct family.

"I can't honestly say that I know for sure that this meeting will move our campaign on but I know it is important for Kevin, Eileen and my mother to meet the Taoiseach. They have been waiting for a long time to meet him and try to give him some idea of what they and their families have gone through for over 30 years.

"They have questions to ask him and they are happy that they are finally getting the opportunity to do so."
