A man will appear in court again next week charged in connection to the murder of Detective Garda Colm Horkan.

Stephen Silver of Aughaward, Foxford in county Mayo was brought before a special sitting of Castlerea District Court last night.

The 43-year-old made no reply when he was charged with the murder of 49-year-old Detective Garda Horkan.

The officer's death followed a violent incident in Castlerea town on Wednesday.

Mr. Silver kept his head down for much of the proceedings - but did say "unreal." and "I had no firearm."
