Gardaí mark death of murdered colleague
FLAG FLYING AT HALF MAST AT STATION
THE FLAG is flying at half mast at Bray Garda Station, to mark the sad death of Detective Garda Adrian Donohoe from Dundalk.
Det. Garda Donohoe was killed in the line of duty last week. He was shot during the course of a robbery at a credit union in Lordship, County Louth. A massive manhunt is now underway to find the gang who murdered the father of two.
Superintendent Pat Ward of Bray Garda Station said that a book of condolence was opened at the station in response to people calling in to offer their sympathies. He said that a book is also open at Greystones Garda Station for the same reason.
‘It will remain open until the burial,’ said Supt. Ward, adding that the tragedy is very sad news that highlights the dangers that gardai face every day.
‘We would like to offer our sym- pathy and condolences to his wife Caroline and their two children,’ said Superintendent Ward.
‘I hope that the investigation can reach a satisfactory conclusion and we wish our colleagues in Dundalk success with that.’
Supt. Ward added that Det. Garda Donohoe’s two brothers are gardai in Swords and Navan, while his wife is a garda working for immigration.
The funeral takes place today ( Wednesday) in Dundalk.
