A statement by the Irish League of Credit Unions

The President of the Irish League of Credit Union Mr Jimmy Johnstone extends our deepest sympathies to the family of Detective Garda Adrian Donohoe who died following an attempted robbery last night at Lordship Credit Union, Jenkinstown, Dundalk.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Detective Garda Donohoe’s family and his colleagues in An Garda Siochana at this sad and very difficult time.

The Irish League of Credit Unions are in contact with the management and staff of Lordship Credit Union with a view to providing the counselling service to those involved with the incident which has been extremely traumatic and difficult for everyone involved.

We are not in a position to comment any further at this time as we are co-operating with the Garda investigation.
