Aaron was initially arrested and charged with Adrian O Donohoe’s murder on the 4th of March 2018.

The statements upon which Aaron was initially arrested on were found to be inadmissible and contentious. On the 25th of July 2019 at 07.30 NYPD, Homeland Security and an Emigration Removal Officer showed up to Daniel Cahills apartment.

They found cannabis plants and steroids. There is 6 hours unaccounted for until at 13.30, and then Daniel Cahill gave a statement alleging Aaron told him “he shot the cop”.

Daniel Cahill gave his statement on the 25th of July 2019 at 13.30 in New York, which IS SIX YEARS after Adrian O Donoghue was murdered.

When an Immigration Removal Officer shows up, the standard procedure is that they are there to detain and remove an individual on the next available commercial flight out of the United States.

Daniel Cahill remains in the United States and we believe been awarded his visa since. This is just one of many examples of questionable evidence that has contributed to putting Aaron behind bars…

The prosecution stated that there was
no DNA or Forensic evidence.


Footprints were found behind the wall where the gunman was hiding.


DNA was found on the driver’s door of the Garda car.


DNA was found on a lighter at the alleged burn site.

To this day. No DNA has been identified.

Whilst this was mentioned in the original hearing it BAFFLES me that considering this entire case was based on circumstantial evidence.


Why WAS this detail not given more weight at the time of the verdict being considered ?

The DNA was investigated by specialists and found not to match Aaron, but the prosecution failed to mention this during the trial.

We should also note there was no murder weapon found and the valuables from the robbery were never recovered. 

My son Aaron Brady is no saint, but the following evidence strongly suggests that he was wrongly convicted for a murder that he did not commit.  

The following points cast not just REASONABLE, but STRONG DOUBT on key points of evidence that contributed towards Aaron’s conviction for the murder of Adrian Donohoe.

My strong condolences go to the family, friends, and colleagues of Adrian Donohoe, who will be seeking justice and closure on his murder. But what follows suggests that Aaron is not your man.

To find justice we need to see the whole picture and we can only do that when we have all the facts.
