The trial of a man accused of murdering Detective Garda Adrian Donohoe this week heard from the late officer's colleagues and credit union workers who were at the scene the night he was shot dead.

One witness told the court she feared being killed having "seen too much", while his partner recalled thinking he would prefer being shot with a handgun rather than a shotgun because it would give him a better chance of survival.

The evidence was given at the trial of Aaron Brady (28), who has denied the capital murder of Det Gda Donohoe at Lordship Credit Union in Bellurgan, Co Louth, on January 25, 2013.
