Inquests into Dublin bomb deaths begin today

Inquests into the deaths of three men in loyalist bomb attacks in Dublin more than 30 years ago are due to get underway.

The three victims, all bus workers, were killed in bomb attacks on Sackville Place, just off O'Connell Street, in December 1972 and January 1973.

Nobody has ever been prosecuted in connection with the bombings, which have been surrounded by allegations of British army collusion.

Last week, an Oireachtas committee holding hearings into the attacks slammed the British government's failure to co-operate with the Barron Inquiry set up to investigate a series of loyalist attacks in the Republic in the 1970s.

Relatives of the victims have called on the Government to take a case against Britain to the European Courts of Human Rights in light of this non co-operation.
