Praise for LMFM journalist at Justice Media Awards

Local journalist Ruth O'Connell was presented with a merit certificate at the Justice Media Awards last week for her report for LMFM on the inquest of murdered Garda Tony Golden.

Ruth was one of the 35 Irish radio and print journalists honoured at the awards hosted by the Law Society of Ireland in its historic Blackhall Place headquarters.

The citation praised Ruth for her reporting of the detailed discussion on the evidence heard at the inquest of a Garda murdered in the line of duty.

'Detailed, compassionate reporting on the evidence presented at the inquest into the death of Garda Tony Golden. This reporter displays great skill in helping listeners understand the inquest proceedings and the wider circumstances involved in an extremely difficult case that shocked the people of Louth and across the nation.'
