Woman arrested in relation to Bundoran hit-and-run released

alanA woman in her 20s who was arrested last night over the hit-and-run death of Alan McSherry in Co Donegal has been released without charge.
The body of 48-year-old Alan McSherry was discovered on a road at Ardfarn, Bundoran, in the early hours of Sunday, August 25th.
The woman who is in her 20s was arrested in Ballyshannon and was detained under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act, 1984, at Ballyshannon Garda station.
A file has been sent to the Director of Public Prosecutions.
Detectives believe Mr McSherry may have been walking on a narrow unlit country road to his home at 4.40am on the night in question.
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 because they loved surfing.
He died in the townland of Ardfarn when he was walking home to his house just across the Co Leitrim border at Boyannagh after a night socialising.
The road is mostly used by locals but it is also a back route out of Bundoran to other rural links such as Ballyshannon, Kinlough in Co Leitrim and Garrison in Co Fermanagh.
