The Taoiseach, Bertie Ahern, met survivors and families of those who died in the Miami Showband atrocity this afternoon.

Afterwards, members of the families said they were pleased with the meeting with Mr Ahern.

Three members of the group were killed by the Ulster Volunteer Force near the border in Co Down in 1975. 

The attack was one of a number of atrocities examined by a joint Dáil and Seanad Committee, whose report was published yesterday. 

It concluded that there was widespread collusion between the British security forces and those behind the attacks.
