Book claims loyalist collusion gang had base in Dungannon


A new book has claimed members of the RUC and UDR were part of a loyalist gang that killed more than 100 people in the 1970s, and operated from a base at a farm in Dungannon.

Lethal Allies - British Collusion in Ireland, written by a researcher with the Pat Finucane Centre, contains other extracts of unpublished reports by the Historical Enquiries Team (HET) that refer to evidence of widespread collusion.

The book claims the loyalist gang operated from farms in Glennane in south Armagh, and Dungannon, County Tyrone, and that the security forces were aware of their activities.

The author, Anne Cadwallader, claims RUC officers and members of the UDR were part of a gang operating from two farms in south Armagh and Tyrone that killed 120 people between 1972 and 1976.
