Woman charged with Macroom murder

Wednesday, 10th October, 2018 5:08pm

A woman charged with the murder of her partner in Macroom will appear in court again next Wednesday.

Rita O’Driscoll appeared at Macroom District Court yesterday in connection with the fatal stabbing of her partner Timmy Foley in the early hours of Monday morning.

Gardaí were called to the scene at a house at Dan Corkery Place at approximately 1.50am on Monday, where they discovered Mr Foley, 44, deceased with suspected stab wounds.

Gardaí later arrested Ms O’Driscoll in connection with the incident, and she was detained at Bandon Garda Station under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act, 1984.

Speaking about the death of Mr Foley, who was originally from Clonakilty, Cork North-West TD Andrias Moynihan said: “For something to happen like this in such a close-knit community is just awful. It reminds you of something you might see on television. In Macroom, everyone knows each other and has grown up together, so to have something like this happen on your doorstep is terrible for the community, and for the family involved too.”

Gardaí are appealing for witnesses to contact the incident room at Macroom Garda Station on 026-20590, the Garda Confidential Telephone Line 1800-666111 or any garda station.
