Man arrested by officers investigating the murder of Adrian Donohoe”

Gardai have made an arrest in connection with the murder of Detective Garda Adrian Donohoe.

Gardaí have been working very close with a foreign police force in keeping the suspect under surveillance in recent years. He has also been arrested overseas and in Ireland and spent time in custody in both jurisdictions in recent years.

He has also been convicted of other serious crimes since the murder, though not firearm offences.

A man in his twenties was detained in Dublin this evening and is now being questioned at Dundalk Garda station under section 50 of the Criminal Justice Act.

Gardaí in Dundalk said tonight they have arrested a male aged in his 20s in connection with the murder.

Last week, it was reported that the Federal Bureau of Investigation were increasing their efforts in apprehending two suspects in the murder who are believed to be living in the grater Boston area of MA.

The arrest comes more than five years after Mr Donohoe was brutally killed outside Lordship Credit Union in Co Louth.

However, Garda sources said Sunday night's arrest was significant and that evidence gathered in the case was being put to the suspect.

He can be held without charge for up to seven days.

Det Gda Donohoe was shot dead outside a credit union premises at Lordship, Bellurgan, outside Dundalk, on January 25, 2013.

The pair were en route to meet local credit union officials at the Lordship Credit Union in Bellurgan, who would then travel in a three auto convoy to a bank in Dundalk town to lodge takings in a nightsafe.

Det Donohoe and a colleague, Detective Garda Joseph Ryan, were on a cash escort from a number of credit unions on the Cooley Peninsula when an armed gang blocked them in to a auto park outside Lordship Credit Union.

Det Garda Donohoe, who was the passenger in the patrol auto, got out of the vehicle to approach the Passat - but was shot once in the head just as he placed a foot on the ground.
