THE priest who celebrated the State funeral of Detective Garda Adrian Donohoe has appealed for anyone with information about his killers to come forward.

Det Garda Donohoe was shot dead during an armed raid at the Lordship Credit Union near Dundalk in Co Louth last month.


Speaking on RTE’s Marian Finucane show, Fr Michael Cusack said people with information had a duty to assist the investigation into the murder.


“My priority would be to address Caroline’s grief and her family’s grief, her parent’s grief… and also to appeal… to say there are people out there in the community who know who did this," he said.


"There are people connected with those who did it. You can make a difference now by coming forward and give information to the garda station.


“I know that means the world to Caroline and her family… it’s vital that the people who did this are brought to justice because otherwise it makes life too difficult to countenance.


“So anyone who has any information, no matter how insignificant, I think you have a duty to come forward.


“These people had choices and have made choices that have destroyed the lives not just of Adrian but of a full community, ruined Caroline’s life, ruined his children’s lives, his parents’ lives, his colleagues… there was a brutality there that has to be reckoned with," he added.
