Renewed Appeal On 3rd Anniversary Of Adrian Donohoe Murder

The Garda Commissioner, Nóirín O'Sullivan, has marked the 3rd anniversary of the 'brutal and senseless' murder of Detective Garda Adrian Donohoe.

A statement released by Commissioner O'Sullivan said: "It is three years now since Detective Garda Adrian Donohoe was brutally and senselessly murdered in the line of duty.

"The impact of Adrian's death is still keenly felt in Dundalk, amongst the Garda family, and the wider community. Most of all, our thoughts today are with Caroline, the children, and all of Adrian's family and friends.

"Adrian Donohoe was the very embodiment of dedication to the community he served. He was not only integral to the team at Dundalk Garda station, but also St. Patrick's GAA in Lordship, and to the lives of the children of the underage teams he coached.

The reaction to his murder is testament to the breadth of influence he had on people's lives, and the depth of feeling towards him.

"An Garda Síochána is committed to ensuring Adrian's killers are brought to justice and extensive assistance is being provided by law enforcement colleagues, including the PSNI.

"At this time, I would appeal to anyone with information on Adrian's murder to come forward and help us with our enquiries. The smallest piece of information could be significant. There are still people out there who know who the killers are. It is never too late to do the right thing. Any information provided will be treated sensitively."
