The Republic's most senior police officer has marked the third anniversary of the murder of Detective Adrian Donohoe with a renewed vow to catch his killers - who are believed to be living in Northern Ireland.

Garda Commissioner Noirin O'Sullivan urged people who know the armed gang who shot the respected officer dead to come forward with the names.

Garda Donohoe was gunned down on January 25, 2013 as robbers held up the credit union in the village of Lordship on the Cooley peninsula.

Some of the gang members fled abroad from the border region after the killing but it is believed a number are now back living in the south Armagh area.
