A 31-year-old man will appear in court in Dublin this morning charged in connection with a credit union robbery in which Detective Garda Adrian Donohoe was shot and killed.
Ames Flynn was arrested at Dublin Airport last night after being extradited from the UK.
He was held overnight at a Dublin Garda station.
He is due to appear before the Criminal Courts of Justice in Dublin this morning charged in connection with the robbery of Lordship Credit Union, Co Louth on January 25, 2013.
During the raid, Detective Garda Adrian Donohoe, who was in an armed cash escort, was shot and mortally wounded.
In 2020, Aaron Brady (32) was sentenced to life imprisonment with a minimum of 40 years for capital murder.
Inquiries continued after his conviction and last July James Flynn was arrested in Watford on an extradition warrant.
Since then he has been in detention while trying to fight his deportation from the UK.
In April, Westminster Magistrates’ Court ordered his extradition to Ireland, but this has been appealed to the High Court.
Earlier this month his appeal was dismissed and James Flynn is to be returned to Ireland to face formal charges in the credit union robbery.
