Fatal Hit-and-Run of Beloved GAA Coach Remains Under Active Investigation, Confirms GSOC

The fatal hit-and-run incident that claimed the life of popular GAA coach Niall MacEneaney remains under active investigation, the Garda Síochána Ombudsman Commission (GSOC) has confirmed.

Mr MacEneaney, 42, was struck and killed by a vehicle on the Rathmullan Road in Drogheda, Co Louth, in the early hours of March 17. The vehicle, a private car registered to an off-duty garda, left the scene. The garda involved has since been suspended and interviewed by GSOC, who are leading the investigation.

A vital piece of evidence, a registration plate from the suspected vehicle, was found at the scene, aiding investigators in tracing the vehicle’s owner. CCTV footage tracking the suspect’s movements and the vehicle is expected to be crucial in the ongoing investigation.

MacEneaney, who recently led Termonfeckin’s St Fechin’s club to consecutive Louth senior hurling championships, was found unresponsive at around 2:40 am and was pronounced dead by emergency services. He is survived by his wife, Grace.
