Mark Hennessy Inquest Adjourned

Hugh O’Farrell Walsh of East Coast FM News reports that the inquest into the death of Mark Hennessy has been adjourned following a request from the Garda Ombudsman Commission.

Hennessy – who abducted and murdered Jastine Valdez last May – was shot dead with a Garda firearm, following a major manhunt.

He’d been tracked down to a carpark in the Cherrywood Business Park in South Dublin.

Following the incident, an officer was placed under criminal investigation by GSOC, under section 91 of the Garda Siochána Act.

A GSOC spokesperson says the investigation is ongoing.
