Sceala Irish Craic Forum Discussion:     Dublin Monaghan Bomb Report Delayed Yet Again

The Irish goverment investigation into the Dublin Monaghan bombings is delayed yet again, causing the relatives of those murdered to be very concerned as to why.

The families of victims killed in the Dublin Monaghan bombings have criticised delays in a Government-commissioned investigation as it past its sixth deadline. Justice for the Forgotten said it is concerned and disappointed that the Commission of Investigation into the 1974 tragedy is to ask for its seventh extension.

“Obviously, at this stage, this is a disappointment,” said Margaret Urwin, of Justice for the Forgotten. While we were perfectly happy to accept that Mr MacEntee needed extensions in order to complete the investigation, it stated in the last interim report that he had finished the investigation and was in the process of checking evidence with persons who added to the report. Now we are very concerned. We knew the report was never going to be published next week, but it was meant to be going to government. Even at that stage it wouldn’t be made public until February, but with the Dail and Seanad about to rise for Christmas we don’t know when it will be published. It will also have to be cleared by the Attorney General to ensure it does not interfere with human rights of those who gave evidence or that there are any legal issues.”

The Irish Government agreed to its last extension to December 11 in October.

“This is the seventh time an extension has been sought since it started on May 13 last year,” Ms Urwin continued. “It was due to last six months, but now it is running more and more behind schedule. There are no concessions given to us over this time. We get no information to pass on to the families and even on the day when the report is finally published we won’t have any concessions, we might just get it a couple of hours before it is made public.”

The terms of reference of the commission were to report on why the garda investigation was wound down in 1974, why gardai did not follow up on information that a white van with an English registration was parked on Portland Row and was later seen parked in Dublin’s ferry port, and the subsequent contact with a British army officer on a ferry boat leaving Dublin.
