Gardai renew appeal over Donegal murder

Gardai have renewed their appeal for information as part of an ongoing investigation into the murder of Andrew Burns in Donnyloop in 2008.

They believed a number of people were involved in the 27 year old’s murder.

11 years ago today, 27 year old Andrew Burns was murdered in Donnyloop, Castlefin by persons Gardai believe to be linked to violent Dissident Republican activity.

Between 7.05pm and 7.15pm on the 12th February 2008, Andrew Burns received gunshot wounds.

He was found on a roadway close to Donnyloop Church and was pronounced dead shortly before 8pm.

Gardai say while one person has been convicted of his murder and a number of persons have been arrested in connection with the investigation, they believed a number of people were involved in the murder.

Anyone with any information that could assist the investigation is urged to contact the incident room at Letterkenny Garda Station.
