Superintendent appeals for information in wake of Swinford homicide

Fri, Aug 18, 2017

Supt Tony Healy urged members of the public who may have even a small bit of information to come forward to Gardai who are investigating the suspected murder of Joe Deacy in Swinford last weekend. Supt Healy told the Mayo Advertiser yesterday afternoon: "Any little bit of information that people have can make a huge difference in an investigation." Speaking about the response from the public to date he said: "It's been really good, we are working through those and looking at CCTV footage and other things to progress the investigation."

Mayo Pride Parade is another important step in our history

Fri, Aug 04, 2017

I was very disappointed to have missed the first Mayo Pride Parade in Castlebar on Saturday July22. I was out of the country but as soon as I got back I read the local papers' reports and contacted Mick Baynes, one of the event organisers, to get another view of what by all accounts was a well-attended day of good spirited solidarity. It is not that long ago when even the thought of such a colourful Pride parade through the county capital's streets would have met weighty and vociferous opposition.
