Plea for help finding Garda killers who fled to Northern Ireland after shooting Detective Adrian Donohoe

By Nicola Anderson

The investigation into the murder of an Irish policeman is "progressing very steadily" but is "very complex", the Garda Commissioner has said.

Speaking on the second anniversary of the murder of Detective Garda Adrian Donohoe, Noirin O'Sullivan said there are still people "out there" who can help the investigation, calling on them to come forward.

She was speaking at a memorial mass for Mr Donohoe at St Joseph's Church in Dundalk yesterday.

The father of two was gunned down outside a credit union in the Co Louth village of Bellurgan while escorting staff on their way to lodge cash in the night safe in Dundalk. The killers are believed to have fled to Northern Ireland.

Meanwhile, Sinn Fein leader Gerry Adams has offered to act as a "go-between" for anyone with information, but who may be "too frightened" to come forward. He described Mr Donohoe as an "upstanding person" and said his killers should be brought to justice.
