Justice Frank Clarke appointed to inquiry of GSOC following death of Michael Galvin.

micael-galvinThe Justice Minister has announced the appointment of Mr. Justice Frank Clarke to the independent inquiry of GSOC following the death of Sgt. Michael Galvin.

Sgt Galvin apparently took his own life at Ballyshannon Garda Station in Donegal last month.

He had been investigated by the Garda Ombudsman as a result of Garda contact with a woman shortly before she died in a road incident on New Year's Day - and was cleared of any wrong doing.

However, the father of three had been reportedly unaware of that at the time of his death.

The inquiry is to examine matters relating to the GSOC investigation.
