A Department of Justice review into numerous claims of Garda misconduct has been described as meaningless by one of the families whose complaint it is examining.
Lucia O’Farrell, whose son Shane, 23, was killed in a hit and run in 2011, said there is a conflict of interest because the review of how garda√≠ handled his case will be overseen by the barrister who represented her son’s killer in the subsequent trial.
She has written to Justice Minister Frances Fitzgerald to say it is “totally unfair” that Conor Devally has been appointed as one of two senior counsel overseeing the review.
There will be five junior counsel on the seven-person panel, which will examine 220 allegations of Garda misconduct.
