THREE MEN HAVE been arrested over the fatal hit-and-run incident in Killiney, Dublin earlier this month. 

On 10 March, special needs assistant Jacqueline McGovern (54) died after a getaway driver knocked her down on Avondale Road following the robbery of a nearby Centra store. 

During the robbery, three men entered the shop and threatened staff before making off with a sum of cash. 

They left the scene in a car that was involved in the collision. The men abandoned the car at the scene and fled on foot. 

McGovern was taken to St Vincent’s University Hospital where she was later pronounced dead. 

Another pedestrian involved in the incident was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
