19 year old to face retrial over garda’s death

The State is to seek a retrial of a Kerrykeel man accused of the manslaughter of a garda, who died two weeks after being struck by a car.

On Friday a  jury at Letterkenny Circuit Court failed to reach a verdict on the charge of manslaughter against Jamie McGrenaghan of Gortnatraw.

McGrenaghan had pleaded not guilty to the manslaughter of 29-year-old Garda Robbie McCallion, but admitted dangerous driving causing his death.

He was found guilty of endangering the lives of two of Garda McCallion's colleagues
