Boyanah woman charged in fatal hit-and-run case

alanmcsherryA waitress has been charged with dangerous driving causing the death of skilled surfer Alan McSherry, 48, in a hit-and-run collision.

Lisa Roohan, from Boyanagh on the Leitrim/Donegal border outside Ballyshannon, is accused of the offence near Mr McSherry’s home outside Bundoran on August 25 last year.

Lisa Roohan appeared at Ballyshannon District Court last month when Judge Kevin Kilrane remanded her on bail to the same court on June 20 for service of the book of evidence.

Inspector Denis Joyce told him Roohan had surrendered her passport to gardai.

Roohan is to appear in court on separate driving charges linked to the incident on Friday this week.

Mr McSherry’s body was found on a dark country road at 5.10 a.m. by his wife Jo.

The couple, from Birkenhead near Liverpool had been living in the Bundoran area for 13 years.

They were attracted to the area because they were keen surfers.

Before Mr McSherry’s body was returned for burial to Birkenhead, surfers from Bundoran paddled out to sea with flowers in their own special tribute.
