The leader of the gang involved in the murder of Garda Adrian Donohoe is being investigated for a €70,000 ATM robbery.

Around €50,000 worth of damage was caused when a cash machine was torn from the wall of an AIB Bank with a stolen digger shortly after 3am on Tuesday morning in Co Monaghan.

CCTV shows a tractor and trailer carrying the digger arriving on Main Street in Castleblayney.

It was the eighth ATM robbery in 2019, with gardaí believing a number of different cross-Border gangs have been involved in the heists.

Faulty sensors suspected in Boeing 737 Max crash: report

Faulty sensors suspected in Boeing 737 Max crash: report Data collected from an Ethiopian Airlines flight that crashed earlier this month suggests the tragedy was caused by a faulty sensor that mistakenly triggered one of the Boeing 737 Max 8's automated systems, The New York Times reported Friday. Three people briefed on the contents of th e flight's black box told the newspaper that data from the plane's angle-of-attack sensor activated a computer-controlled system that led to the nose-dive that killed all 157 people on board. The cause of the crash is similar to the suspected source of another crash in Indonesia involving the same jet.

Detectives are probing if the leader of the gang involved in the murder of Detective Garda Adrian Donohoe was involved in the audacious robbery of two Gardaí are following a number of lines of inquiry, including that a mob led by a south Armagh criminal - who is in his late 20s and suspected of

Adrian Donohoe died after he was shot during a raid on Lordship Credit Union in County Louth on 25 January, 2013. Aaron Brady, from New Road in The jury found him guilty by a majority verdict of 11 to one. The crime of capital murder in the Republic of Ireland carries a mandatory minimum sentence

However, a senior source revealed last night detectives were now focusing on the leader of a south Armagh/north Louth gang - a chief suspect in the Gda Donohoe murder but who has never been arrested in relation to the crime.

"He is being looked at very much in relation to the Co Monaghan crime but his crew are suspected of at least one of the other ATM heists that have happened across the Border, but in all probability a few more as well," the source revealed.

"Obviously this is a very dangerous criminal gang who were involved in the murder of a garda and they also have close links to dissident Republicans - they have been on a cross-Border crimewave for many years at this stage," the source added.

Adrian Donohoe lived in the area he policed. That would be unthinkable in south Armagh. The former senator Maurice Hayes Hayes says more needs to be done to bring the PSNI and the Garda closer, and to facilitate seamless cross- Border investigation of crimes such as Adrian Donohoe ’s killing .

Detective Garda Adrian Donohoe was. shot in a robbery at Lordship Credit Union, County Louth, on 25 January 2013. The gang that carried out the Ms O'Sullivan renewed the appeal for information, saying there were people in the community who have significant information that could help the

The audacious gang used a tractor and trailer to block the road from the nearby local Garda station, located just 500 yards away, while carrying out the crime which took less than four minutes.

Local Garda units are understood to have responded to the raid within minutes but the criminals had already fled the scene.

Gardaí were alerted to the cash machine theft about 3am and came across a John Deere tractor and a trailer blocking York Street.

When officers arrived at the bank, the ATM had already been ripped from the building and the digger's engine was still running.

Gardaí said a dark-coloured 4x4 vehicle, with the cash machine on a trailer, travelled in the direction of Co Armagh but there have been no arrests made yet in the case, which is also being investigated by the PSNI.

Detective Garda Adrian Donohoe , 41, a father of two, was killed at Lordship Credit Union in Bellurgan on Friday. While Irish police have not ruled anything out at this stage, they suspect that a cross- border gang was involved in the robbery and murder, and that gang operates in the north

So far, one man has been charged with the murder of Detective Garda Donohoe and is due to face trial later this year.

But despite the Garda attention on him, the ATM robbery gang leader, who has not been arrested, is still involved in armed robberies and thefts on both sides of the Border.

"He is regularly stopped and searched but he cannot be arrested unless he is caught committing an offence.

"It is very frustrating but that is the reality of the situation," a source said.

"Investigators are in no doubt that this individual was present at the scene on the night of the murder," the source added.

Meanwhile, no one was injured in Tuesday morning's crime.

There have been 11 ATM robberies on both sides of the Border in less than 12 months - seven of them in the North and four in the south.

Last Monday, a digger was used to remove an ATM from the wall of a shop in Ahoghill, Co Antrim.

After that, a senior PSNI officer raised the possibility dissidents might be benefiting from the series of raids.

Detective Chief Inspector David Henderson said they were looking at "several gangs" being involved in the crimes.

Doomed Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737 Max that crashed and killed 157 people had its 'angle-of-attack sensor damaged during takeoff from a foreign object or bird'

Doomed Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737 Max that crashed and killed 157 people had its 'angle-of-attack sensor damaged during takeoff from a foreign object or bird' The doomed Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737 Max that crashed and killed 157 people last month reportedly had its angle-of-attack sensor damaged on takeoff from a foreign object or bird. The damaged sensor went on to trigger inaccurate data and resulted in the pilots turning the anti-stall software - known as MCAS - off, but it re-engaged and pushed the jet downwards, aviation sources close to the investigation told ABC News.

"We have no evidence that paramilitaries are involved, but all crime in Northern Ireland usually goes back to paramilitaries, whether committed by them or whether they tax the perpetrators of the crime and take some of the criminal assets from them," he said.

Since March last year the towns hit were Keady in Co Armagh; Ballyclare in Co Antrim; Ballybay in Co Monaghan; Fintona in Co Tyrone; Moira in Co Down; Antrim town, Omagh and Dungannon in Co Tyrone; Newtownabbey in Co Antrim; Irvinestown in Co Fermanagh and then Ahoghill before Castleblayney.
