Prayers to be offered for slain detective as Cardinal Brady reveals shock

PRAYERS will be said at masses across Ireland today for murdered garda Adrian Donohoe.



Catholic Primate Cardinal Sean Brady said he had been deeply saddened by the shooting, which has not only sparked revulsion among the tight-knit garda fraternity and with political leaders but has also plunged the wider society into a deep sense of dismay.



Cardinal Brady said: "It has shocked and horrified the entire community. The taking of innocent life is always wrong. Detective Garda Donohoe lost his life as he carried out his duty in the service of society.



"I appeal to all of society to unite in rejecting such wanton violence and criminal lack of respect for human life."
