Gardaí are investigating if the gang who killed an innocent woman after they ploughed their getaway car into her following a robbery went to a local pub and drank pints afterwards.

The Irish Independent can reveal gardaí have identified a number of suspects in the horrific killing of special needs assistant and mother Jacqueline McGovern (54).

They are from the same south Dublin suburb and are known to gardaí for burglary, theft and assaults.
