Dono­hoe case gets re­newed at­ten­tion



THE AR­REST of a man, af­ter al­most 12 years, for the mur­der of Irene White has given the team of de­tec­tives work­ing on the Adrian Dono­hoe fresh hope of a break­through in their case as the com­mu­nity marks the fourth an­niver­sary of the 42-year-old’s death to­mor­row ( Wed­nes­day).

A source told the Ar­gus that the team work­ing on the Dono­hoe case has ‘re­ceived re­newed hope of a break­through’ fol­low­ing Satur­day’s charge. De­tec­tive Dono­hoe’s an­niver­sary Mass takes place in St Joseph’s Redemp­torist Church at 9.30am.

GAR­DAI work­ing on the fouryear-old Adrian Dono­hoe mur­der case have been boosted by news of the ar­rest of a 34-yearold man in con­nec­tion with the mur­der of Irene White al­most 12 years ago.

The charg­ing of An­thony Lambe with the mur­der of the Dun­dalk mum came ‘out of the blue’ ac­cord­ing to sources, who told the Ar­gus that de­tec­tives work­ing on find­ing those re­spon­si­ble for their col­leagues mur­der, which hap­pened four years ago to­mor­row, have re­newed hope that they too can get a break­through in their case in which no ar­rests have yet been made.

‘ There is def­i­nitely re­newed hope in the team in­ves­ti­gat­ing Adrian’s death that charges can be brought to jus­tice, no mat­ter how long it takes, that a break­through can be made’.

De­tec­tive Garda Dono­hoe was mur­dered by a gang who robbed Lord­ship Credit Union on Jan­uary 25 2013. The fa­ther of two was with his part­ner, Joe Ryan, and were pro­vid­ing a rou­tine cash es­cort when he was shot dead by a gang.

Adrian’s fourth an­niver­sary Mass takes place at St Joseph’s Redemp­torist Church at 9.30am to­mor­row ( Wed­nes­day) and comes less than a week af­ter hun­dreds of peo­ple at­tended the an­nual vigil of re­mem­brance at the credit union with a can­dle­light walk to St Pa­trick’s GFC where Adrian was a vol­un­teer. In Septem­ber last year, Adrian was posthu­mously awarded the Scott medal for brav­ery, while De­tec­tive Ryan re­ceived a sil­ver Scott medal.

And the Re­mem­ber­ing Adrian Com­mit­tee will be in the Marshes Shop­ping Cen­tre this Thurs­day and Fri­day sell­ing a CD record­ing of the ma­jor con­cert held in trib­ute to Adrian on the an­niver­sary of his death last year.

The sold out event which fea­tured MC Eileen Dunne and per­for­mances from The Priests, Liam Lawton, The Redemp­torist Se­nior Choir, Ste­wart Agnew, Kath­leen Maddy and Leah Kir­wan, suc­ceeded in rais­ing €15,000 for a schol­ar­ship scheme.
