The Prison Officers Association wishes to extend deepest sympathy to the family and colleagues of Detective Garda Adrian Donohoe after his brutal murder, while on duty, in County Louth last night.
This is a dreadful crime and hopefully those responsible will be identified and brought to justice. This brave man was mown down in his prime while doing his duty on behalf of the state and all of us.
Our thoughts are with his family, colleagues and friends at this very difficult time for all of them. We have passed our condolences to the Garda Representative Association.
