A local woman has been arrested and charged with dangerous driving causing death in relation to a suspected hit and run incident near Bundoran last August.

Lisa Roohan (24) from Boyannagh was also charged at Ballyshannon District Court with giving false information to a guard. She was remanded on bail to Ballyshannon on June 20 and ordered to surrender her passport.

Alan McSherry (48) died as a result of injuries sustained on a country road at Ardfarna, close to Bundoran on August 25th last.

It is thought that he was walking home when the incident occurred in the early hours of the morning.

His body was discovered at 5.10am by his wife Jo as she drove from her home in search of him.

Mr McSherry had moved from Birkenhead near Liverpool with his wife to Bundoran more than 15 years ago and was well known locally, especially among his fellow surfers.
