A third man is due to appear in court in connection with a robbery and fatal hit and run on the Southside earlier this month.

Mother of three Jacqueline McGovern was killed when she was hit by a getaway car in Killiney on March 10th.

The crash happened soon after a robbery in Dalkey nearby.

Two men have been charged with the robbery and the third is due to appear before Dun Laoghaire District Court later.


The robbery took place on the night of March 10th, when a group of men threatened staff at a shop on the Barnhill Road in Dalkey.

After this they fled with a sum of cash, nobody was injured during the incident.

They attempted to make a getaway in a car.

Soon afterward, they were involved in a collision with two pedestrians at the corner of Ballinclea Road and Avondale Road in Killiney.

Finally the men abandoned the car and continued on foot.
