Bray People - - NEWS - MARY FOG­A­RTY

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.
