The incident is under examination by the Garda Ombudsman (GSOC), who received a referral from gardaí under Section 102(1) of the Garda Siochana Act 2005.

This section provides for the referral of “any matter that appears … to indicate that the conduct of a member of the Garda Síochána may have resulted in the death of, or serious harm to, a person”.

As the matter is now under examination, GSOC said there will be no further comment at this time.
