Praise for Gar­daí as pair found guilty

Bray People - - Front Page -

GAR­DAI have been praised for their in­ves­ti­ga­tions which led to the con­vic­tions of two men found guilty of as­sault­ing an off-duty in­spec­tor and an­other man in Bray.

Insp. Jim De­laney, his girl­friend Eva O’Con­nor and their friend John Crowe were at­tacked by Ed­ward Do­ran and John Cox and three oth­ers in a laneway be­tween Kil­lar­ney Road and Ard­more Cres­cent in the early hours of Jan­uary 27, 2008.

Find­ing the pair guilty of as­sault, Judge Mur­rough Con­nel­lan told Bray District Court that the de­tec­tives who in­ves­ti­gated the at­tack were to be com­mended for their work.

‘They are to be con­grat­u­lated, not cas­ti­gated,’ said Judge Con­nel­lan.

The two men de­nied the as­sault, both claim­ing al­i­bis for the night of the at­tack.
