It's emerged that a man in his 20s defaced a book of condolences open to the public in Drogheda Garda Station on Tuesday.

The man is now facing the prospect of criminal charges. The vandalism stunned colleagues of Garda Golden, murdered in the line of duty.

"I am dismayed at what I've heard from the news bulletins of the desecration of the book of condolences in respect of Garda Tony Golden," the Taoiseach said last night at a Fine Gael dinner in Dublin.
