An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business
Joe O'Reilly (Fine Gael)
I ask the Leader to convey in writing our congratulations and good wishes to the Minister for Justice and Garda Commissioner on the successful completion of Detective Garda Adrian Donohoe's murder trial and sentencing. It is important and vital that justice is done there. We owe great gratitude to the gardaí, various forces of law and order here and, indeed, the Department of Homeland Security in America.
The Donohoe family is highly respected in my county. The parents are still alive there and the family is very respected. After their terrible tragedy a little glimmer of joy came into their lives last week. Adrian's Dad, Mr. Hugh Donohoe, has been president of the local GAA club for years and is a former player. His club won the county championship last week, which was a little joy.
I congratulate all involved in bringing justice in this case and salute the Donohoe family. I urge the Leader to convey my comments to the Minister and the Garda Commissioner.
