There was a “peaceful conclusion” to an incident in Letterkenny as night after a man barricaded himself into a room.

Gardaí lifted a media blackout that was imposed after they were requested to assist a state agency in the execution of a Court Order at a residence in the Letterkenny area.

A Garda Operational Command protocol was initiated that saw an On-Scene Commander and local Garda negotiators attached to the National Negotiators Unit attend the scene with assistance from a number of other Garda Units.

However, as a result of negotiations, the incident was brought to a peaceful resolution shortly before 7pm.
