A 31 year old man will appear before court in Dublin this morning charged in relation to a credit union robbery during which Detective Garda Adrian Donohoe was shot dead.

James Flynn was arrested yesterday evening at Dublin Airport following his extradition from the United Kingdom.

He was detained overnight at a Dublin Garda Station.

He is due to appear before the Criminal Courts of Justice, Dublin this morning charged in connection with the Robbery at the Lordship Credit Union, Co Louth on the 25 January 2013.

During the raid, detective garda Adrian Donohoe, who was on an armed cash escort, was shot and fatally wounded.

In 2020 Aaron Brady (32) was convicted of capital murder and sentenced to life imprisonment with a minimum 40-year term.

The investigation continued after his conviction and last July, James Flynn was arrested in Watford on foot of an extradition warrant.

He has been in custody ever since while attempting to fight his removal from the UK.

In April, Westminster Magistrates’ Court ordered his extradition back to Ireland but this was appealed to the High Court.

Earlier this month his appeal was dismissed and James Flynn is due to be brought back to Ireland to be formally charged with the credit union robbery.
