Garda's murder fills us all with pain and sadness

Published 16/10/2015

Like all decent people across this island, I was revolted at the foul murder of Garda Tony Golden in Omeath, Co Louth, on Sunday evening.

The fact that the sociopathic thug responsible for this horror came from my own beloved county of Down filled me with a sense of sadness and shame.

The fact also that this individual styled himself a republican is, to my mind, a vile affront to that noble aspiration.

To his young widow and children, his family and colleagues in An Garda Siochana, may God comfort and strengthen you at this terrible time.
