Son of murdered Roscommon Garda calls for inquest to be reopened

The son of a Roscommon Garda, who was shot by paramilitaries during a bank raid in Dublin in 1970, says new evidence means the inquest should be reopened.

Finian Fallon’s father, Richard, who chased one of the gang, was shot twice and died at the scene.

He says a retired detective sergeant has alleged there may have been state collusion with the paramilitary gang before the robbery.
