GARDAÍ HAVE SAID they are “moving in the direction” of the people involved in the murder of Detective Garda Adrian Donohoe.
The 41-year-old father of two was shot dead during an armed robbery at Lordship Credit Union in Bellurgan, Co Louth last month.
Garda Commissioner Martin Callinan yesterday visited Dundalk Garda Station to meet with senior officers leading the investigation into the murder of the Garda.
Speaking outside the station yesterday, Callinan said that Gardaí were “under no illusion as to the type of people” they were dealing with, RTÉ Six One News reported.
“Anyone that could come out and shoot a colleague like that in cold blooded murder, you have to think and look at that person in a particular light and we’re not underestimating the degree of difficulty that we face,” he said. “But, you know, we’re up for it and we will be moving in their direction.”
