Louth Chief Superintendent Diarmuid O’Sullivan to retire this month
The recently appointed Louth Chief Superintendent is set to retire this month after less than three months in the job.
Diarmuid O’Sullivan succeeded Pat McGee in the role on November 6th last after transferring from the Dublin Metropolitan Area East Division in Dun Laoghaire.
A native of Cahirciveen in Co Kerry, it was revealed today that he was stepping down from the force after almost 39 years of service.
He joined the force in 1977 and started his career in Harcourt Terrace in Dublin before being transferred to Special Branch in Dublin Castle five years later.
He was involved in the policing during the visits of Bill Clinton, Queen Elizabeth II and Barack Obama to Ireland and been involved in numerous high profile investigations include the Veronica Guerin murder. In more recent times he led the investigation into Elaine O’Hara’s murder, leading to the conviction of Graham Dwyer, and also helped to jail Real IRA boss Michael McKevitt, from Blackrock.
A function to mark his retirement will take place tonight.
