The family of a woman who was seriously injured in a gun attack in which Garda Tony Golden was killed have repeated their calls for a public inquiry.

Adrian Crevan Mackin shot Garda Golden dead and seriously injured his partner Siobhan Phillips on 10 October, 2015 in Omeath, Co Louth.

Crevan Mackin took his own life during the incident.

Ms Phillips' parents Sean and Norma Phillips visited Leinster House today, pressing their case to get the full facts into what happened two years ago.

The attack happened after Ms Phillips complained to gardaí about a severe beating from Crevan Mackin. 

Garda Golden was helping her collect her things from the house when Crevan Mackin opened fire.

Her family say gardaí refused to take a statement from her the day before about the violent assault and threats to kill her and her family.

"I wouldn't advise a young person who is being abused to go the gardaí until this is fixed," said Mr Phillips outside the Dáil after speaking with TDs.

He said the "answers" must come "from a public inquiry".

The family believes Crevan Mackin was a garda informant, with protected status and that is why he was out on bail facing charges before the Special Criminal Court related to dissident republican activity, rather than more serious firearms charges.

Ms Phillips is still recovering and has been left with life-changing injuries.

The Department of Justice has said garda authorities and the Garda Ombudsman Commission are reviewing events. 

It did not address calls for a public inquiry, but said the ongoing investigations should be completed.
