In his witness statement Detective Joe Ryan described the shooter as 6’1 of slim build, right-handed and aimed the gun using his right eye.

Aaron is 5’6, and some weeks prior he had surgery where pins were placed in his right hand – and to note Aaron has extremely poor vision in his right eye.

Detective Ryan described the 2nd gunman as 5’7. So if Aaron Brady who IS only 5’6 is the shooter, – this means WHAT?? The other raider was ONLY 5 ft?

Surely this would be a clear observation to a Detective with 23 years’ experience.

These are 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.
