Garda Commissioner Nóirín O’Sullivan has urged anyone with information about the killing of Garda Adrian Donohoe during a robbery at Lordship Credit Union, near Dundalk, on January 25, 2013, to come forward.
“I am conscious there are people living in the local community that may have that final piece of the jigsaw and I would encourage anybody who has any tiny piece to get in touch with the local gardaí in confidence,” said Ms O’Sullivan .
“It’s very important that the investigation is sequenced in a way that will get the best result and the outcome we all want to see.
“It’s very frustrating for all of us in An Garda Síochána, but we have to make sure that the evidence is put together that sustains a prosecution. It is absolutely our determination that the people that murdered Adrian will be brought to justice.”
Ms O’Sullivan was speaking at Templemore Garda College yesterday as she presented the gold Scott Medal to Det Garda Donohoe’s widow, Caroline.
There was sustained applause when Ms O’Sullivan told Det Garda Donohoe’s children, Niall and Amy: “Your dad was one of the bravest, most courageous members of An Garda Síochána.”
