Plea For Probe Into UVF Bar Massacre

Friday 9th July 2004

The Police Ombudsman's Office has been asked to launch an investigation into a massacre described as the forgotten tragedy of the Troubles.

Nuala O'Loan's office has said it will give "careful consideration" to a dossier it has been handed on the UVF atrocity at The Heights Bar in the Co Down village of Loughinisland 10 years ago.

Six Catholics, including the oldest victim of the Troubles, 87-year-old Barney Green, were shot dead as they watched a World Cup football game on television at the bar in June 1994.

The SDLP's former South Down MLA Eamonn O'Neill has asked Mrs O'Loan to examine police files and assess if everything possible has been done to catch the killer gang.
