Families of the six men murdered by loyalist gunmen in a pub in Co Down recently welcomed a watchdog investigation that exposed significant police collusion with the killers for finally delivering “the truth”.

Northern Ireland’s Police Ombudsman Michael Maguire was damning in his assessment of the police role in the 1994 Ulster Volunteer Force massacre in Loughinisland, Co Down.

Two UVF gunmen burst into the packed bar at around 10.10pm on 18 June 1994 and fired at customers watching the Republic of Ireland play Italy in the World Cup in the USA.

Dr Maguire found that one man suspected of carrying out the mass killing in the Heights Bar was a police informant.

The ombudsman also said the murder squad had been involved in a number of other killings in the years beforehand, but had avoided arrest because the Royal Ulster Constabulary’s Special Branch intelligence unit had withheld evidence from RUC detectives investigating the crimes.

This is your chance to hear first hand the accounts of how the truth was finally revealed and how the search for truth and justice continues for hundreds of others killed by collusion between Loyalist paramilitaries and elements of Britain’s security services.
