The memory of Detective Garda Colm Horkan is set to be honoured with a new GAA memorial pitch and walkway in Charlestown.

Work will begin later this year on the €300,000 project in memory of the garda who was shot dead in Castlerea, Co Roscommon, on June 18.

The facilities are expected to be finished by 2023 and will be constructed and named after Mr Horkan at the Charlestown Sarsfields club.

A talented footballer, Colm played for more than two decades with Charlestown and was part of the squad and management, which won Mayo county titles in 2001 and 2009.
