Fianna Fáil leader Michéal Martin has condemned the horrific murder of a young policeman outside is home today.

“This is a cowardly criminal act. I offer our deepest sympathies to his family and his colleagues in the PSNI. This is an attack on the Irish people and is designed to undermine the peace and reconciliation and progress of recent decades. The evil perpetrators of this act must be brought to justice and deserve no sanctuary.”
