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".

BBC Newsline's Dublin correspondent Shane Harrison reports.
