Several thousand people have attended the state funeral for the Irish policeman shot dead during a robbery in County Louth.
Detective Garda Adrian Donohoe, 41, a father of two, was killed at Lordship Credit Union in Bellurgan on Friday.
Irish police officers walked behind his coffin as it was carried into St Joseph's Redemptorist Church, Dundalk.
A priest told mourners it was the only profession in the country "where we ask people to dance a dance with satan".
