A dossier outlining alleged Garda/IRA collusion in the border areas is to be handed over to the Dublin Judge investigating the killings of RUC officers, Harry Breen and Bob Buchanan.

It is understood the dossier also pinpoints houses on the Cooley peninsula and Co Monaghan which were allegedly used by the IRA as interrogation and murder centres.

The 'collusion dossier' is the work of victim's worker, William Frazer and has taken several years to compile.

As well as the Breen and Buchanan murders, it includes information on the abduction and murder of former RUC Reservist, William Meaklin in August 1975.

There is information too on the infamous Tullyvallen and Kingsmills massacres, and several IRA gun attacks which killed RUC and UDR personnel in south Armagh

The activities of the IRA's notorious Internal Security Unit bosses and John Joe Magee and Freddie Scappaticci are also featured, and houses where they interrogated victims pinpointed.

"I know of two houses in the Omeath area where Magee and Scappaticci interrogated suspected security force informants," said Mr Frazer.

"There is evidence some of the suspects were executed at one of the houses. "

Mr Frazer claimed his dossier would show there were several IRA 'moles' active inside Garda stations along the border at the height of the Troubles.

The outspoken victims worker confirmed he would be travelling to Dublin to hand over his dossier over to Irish Judge, Peter Smithwick, who is heading the Dublin based investigation into allegations of Garda/IRA collusion.

The Tribunal is not expected to begin public hearings for several months.
