Gardai renew appeal nine years after Donegal man’s murder

Gardai have issued a renewed appeal for information about the murder of a Donegal man nine years ago today.

Today, Tuesday February 9th, is the 9th anniversary of the murder of 24-year old Andrew Allen.

He was murdered by a group of individuals at his home at Links View Park, Buncrana. Co Donegal on February 9, 2012.

He was shot in front of his partner at approximately 9.20pm and pronounced dead at the scene.

A burning car believed to be involved in the murder was located at Churchbrea, Fahan, three miles outside Buncrana, shortly after the shooting.

Gardai believe there are still people in both Buncrana and Derry city who have information that may help with the investigation.

Many people have been arrested and questioned over the past nine years.

The gardai together with the Police Service of Northern Ireland continue to investigate the case and are currently following several lines of enquiry on both sides of the border.

With the passage of time, An Garda Síochána is now appealing to anyone with information which may help the investigation to contact them.

Anyone with information can contact the incident room at Buncrana Garda Station 074 93 20540 or the Garda Confidential Line 1800 666 111.
