Memorial takes place at Dublin Castle.

89 Gardai who've been killed in the line of duty are being remembered today.

The annual Garda Memorial Day will take place at Dublin Castle.

The Minister for Justice and the Garda Commissioner will attend the event at midday.



The garda commissioner says the murdered detective Colm Horkan embodied the best of the police force.

Colm Horkan was shot in Castlerea in Roscommon last June.

Drew Harris, speaking at the memorial on Saturday afternoon,  says it has been especially difficult for Colm’s family.
