Praise for Gardaí as pair found guilty
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.
