The 10th anniversary of the killing of Detective Garda Jerry McCabe will be marked with a new RTE documentary.

True Lives – Jerry McCabe: Murder on Main Street – will retell the story of the bungled post office robbery in Adare, Co Limerick, and the hunt for his killers.

The 52-year-old detective was gunned down by an IRA gang in June 1996.

It will also focus on the effect his death has had on his family and the political consequences of the entire affair.

The programme, to be screened on RTE One on Tuesday, June 6, is part of the station’s summer schedule unveiled today.
