Detective Sergeant John Eiffe.
THE garda accidentally shot dead during an attempted bank robbery in the midlands will be laid to rest following a State funeral tomorrow. Justice Minister John O'Donoghue will travel to Ratoath, Co Meath, for the burial of 40-year-old Detective Sergeant John Eiffe.

Det Sgt Eiffe died after being shot by a colleague during a garda ambush when gardaí moved in on a gang of robbers as they were attempting to raid the AIB bank in Abbeyleix, Co Laois, on Friday.

A second garda, who received hip injuries during the incident, has been released from hospital.

A sawn-off shotgun found at the scene is under forensic examination. Cars used by the raiders have also been found and examined.

Gardaí have not yet confirmed if the raid was linked to an earlier robbery involving a four-man gang at the Bank of Ireland, Main St, Urlingford, Co Kilkenny.

The getaway car used in that raid, a Mazda 626, was found yesterday morning by local gardaí.

"It was located to the rear of a shed in Fennor, just two miles from Main Street, on the Cork side of Urlingford. It has been technically examined," a garda spokesman said.

Meanwhile, Garda Commissioner Pat Byrne said he intends to "bring into the public domain" a report of the investigation into the accidental shooting of 40-year-old Det Sgt Eiffe, who was a member of the Garda National Surveillance Unit, which was tracking the raiders.

It formed part of a broader investigation into a spate of armed robberies in Dublin and the midlands, believed to involve up to four criminal gangs from Dublin.

When gardaí moved in on the gang as they arrived at Abbeyleix following a stake-out, Det Sgt Eiffe was accidentally shot dead by a member of the Emergency Response Unit (ERU), which was also involved in the operation.

Det Sgt Eiffe, a native of Ratoath, Co Meath, was based at garda headquarters in Dublin.

He is survived by his wife Lorraine and four children, Andrew, Alison, Michelle and Rachel, aged between two and 15.

His body will be removed from McEntaggert's funeral home to the Holy Trinity Church in Ratoath at 7pm this evening.

Requiem Mass takes place at 11am tomorrow followed by burial in Ratoath Cemetery.

Garda Michael Padden
On Saturday next, November 10, members of the Mayo Gardaí Gaelic football team will take to the hallowed turf of Gaelic Park in New York City to pay tribute to a colleague who lost his life in the line of duty.
Belmullet's Michael Padden died in April 2002 along with colleague Tony Tighe when their patrol car was crashed into by a stolen car and the 27-year-old will be remembered with great pride when the Mayo Garda football team take on their NYPD counterparts.
The prize on offer at the end of the game will be the Michael Padden/John Coughlin Cup. John Coughlin was a member of the NYPD who died in 9/11 and whose grandmother hailed from Mayo.
This will be the first overseas trip undertaken by the Mayo Garda team and at a press conference in Castlebar last Thursday night, in the presence of members of the Padden family, Chief Superintendent, Tony McNamara, explained the significance of the occasion.
"This match will be a fitting tribute to Michael Padden and John Coughlin, who lost their lives protecting the public. The two forces coming together to honour their fallen colleagues will be a very special occasion. Sport and An Garda Síochána have always had a special link and I'm honored to lead our group of 34 officers to New York for the first time and look forward to promoting friendship and fellowship with our colleagues and friends in the NYPD," said Chief Supt McNamara.
These sentiments were echoed by one of the trip's organisers, Sergeant Donie Duignan, who also warmly welcomed the Padden family to Castlebar for the occasion and explained that the Garda team were very proud to be representing the Padden family and An Garda Síochána in Gaelic Park.
"It's a great honour and privilege to be playing for the Michael Padden Cup next weekend. It's just one small way of keeping alive Michael's memory and all that he stood for. Michael lost his life for this great state and we're determined to represent him with great pride in New York against the NYPD.
"In 2003 we won the Garda Inter-Divisional All-Ireland senior championship and in the following months we were invited to travel to New York to play the NYPD. We couldn't get around to it at the time but thanks to a lot of hard work from a lot of people, we'll be flying out from Shannon on Wednesday morning."
In New York the preparations are almost complete for the arrival of the Mayo group. Paul G McCormack, President of the NYPD Gaelic Football Club, explained that his officers were delighted to host the Gardaí.
"We're looking forward to showing you all the myriad sights and attractions that our city has to offer. John's Coughlin's grandmother hails from Mayo and the Coughlin family is proud to have his name on the cup. Michael and John were both a credit to the uniform and an example for everyone on how to be police officers and Irishmen."
The Mayo playing staff will be bolstered by Fr Mick Maloney from Charlestown, who will be chaplain to the team during the trip, and members from the Achill Sound, Westport, Claremorris, Ballina, Swinford, Castlebar, Cong and Ballinrobe stations will be lining out on the famed New York pitch.

Garda Ciaran Jones, Stepaside Garda Station, 24th October 2011
Tragedy of hero Garda who lost his life saving others

by Brian Hutton and Independent.ie reporters

the upper stretches of the River Liffey.

Tuesday October 25 2011

GARDA Ciaran Jones was off duty when raging Liffey waters threatened to collapse the Ballysmuttan Bridge near his Co Wicklow home last night.

But he didn’t think twice of jumping from his own vehicle to warn oncoming motorists of the dangers.

His brother and a friend last saw the young GAA player trying to save the lives of others before he was swept away at 7pm.

Teams searching for him today found a body close to where he was last seen.

Ciaran Jones (25) was stationed at Stepaside, south Dublin and lived at Manor Kilbride.

His body was discovered at Ballyward Bridge, near Manor Kilbride shortly before 9am today.

Superintendent Eamon Keogh, of Blessington Garda Station, said Garda Jones - a member of the force for about four years - was pulled into the river while trying to come to the aid of a motorist.

"He was seen for a few moments by friends and then he wasn't seen again," he said.

There had been fears the bridge across the River Liffey was in danger of collapsing as people tried to cross.

No-one else was injured.

It is understood that up to 60 people witnessed the young sportsman being swept away by flood water.

His brother and sister were at the scene today. Garda Jones’s parents are understood to be returning home from abroad where they had been on holiday.

Ciaran Jones was a prominent GAA player with Kilbride and was also part of Mick O'Dwyer's Wicklow senior football squad over the past four years.

Although Kilbride is not a senior team, Ciaran's outstanding play as a forward had impressed the county selectors and he was considered one of the top scorers in the county.

Searches commenced before 8pm last night and continued to 1am today.

The Irish Coast Guard, the Garda helicopter and mountain and river rescue teams joined Garda colleagues and local people in the search which resumed again at first light.
