A man accused of robbing a credit union worker during a heist which claimed the life of Detective Garda Adrian Donohoe has been denied bail.
Brendan Treanor, of Castletown Road in Dundalk in County Louth, is also accused of conspiring with others to commit burglary.
Detective Garda Adrian Donohoe was shot dead after a cash convoy he was escorting was ambushed outside Lordship Credit Union in County Louth on a wet night almost ten years ago.
Aaron Brady from Crossmaglen, Co Armagh, has since been convicted of his murder.
Brendan Treanor isn’t accused of murdering Detective Donohoe but is alleged to have taken part in the robbery that led to his death.
His trial was due to get underway in October but it has been pushed back to January next year.
As a result, he applied for bail again earlier this month.
One of the reasons submitted to the court was the fact that he has barely seen his new-born son as he has been in custody.
Given those circumstances, his barrister argued that it was an offence to his client’s dignity to refuse him bail.
The judges denied his application and noted that this wasn’t a case where even the strictest of conditions would satisfy the concerns of the court.
