Ruairí Ó Murchú TD welcomes conviction of Aaron Brady

Ruairí Ó MurchúSinn Féin TD for Louth Ruairí Ó Murchú has welcomed the conviction of Aaron Brady for the capital murder of Detective Garda Adrian Donohoe.

The Dundalk Deputy said: “This is an incredibly good result for the Gardaí, the investigation team, and the prosecution legal team who worked so hard to get this conviction.

“There was international support for this prosecution, particularly from the law enforcement agencies in America, and I know everyone involved in the case is grateful for their support, which was key.

“Gardaí, particularly in the Louth Division, have been so badly affected by what happened to Adrian, and later Garda Tony Golden.

“The community and his Garda colleagues in North Louth where Adrian was murdered have been scarred by this terrible tragedy.

“Today is a day to thank all those who came forward with information, who made appeals for information, and for those who gave evidence, for their bravery and determination over the last few years.

“Most importantly, I want to pay tribute to Adrian’s family for the dignity and poise they have shown throughout the last seven years. They have kept his memory alive, kept faith with the justice system, and have not wavered in their pursuit of justice.

“Today is also a day to remember Adrian, his life and his work. He was a well respected detective and a much-loved friend, husband, son, father and brother, whose memory will always be kept in the hearts of the community of North Louth.”
