Investigators found blood in the getaway car used by a gang fleeing a fatal hit and run of a teacher in south Dublin on Tuesday night.

Detectives now believe this DNA evidence will play a key role in the prosecution of the criminals involved.

Special needs assistant Jacqueline McGovern (54) was killed when she was hit by an out-of-control car in Killiney following an armed robbery at a Centra shop just seconds earlier.
