Sinn Féin MLA Caitriona Ruane has extended her sympathies to the family of Garda officer Tony Golden who was killed in Omeath yesterday. 

Ms Ruane said; 

"This incident has caused widespread shock in the local community. 

"I knew Garda Tony Golden personally and he was extremely well known and well liked in the area. 

"He was part of a team of Gardaí who worked with me when threats were made against my life and he visited my home a number of times. 

"He worked closely with the local community, particularly with the Community Alert schemes. 

"My thoughts are with his family at this very sad time."
