New cross border appeal over Andrew Allen murder

Seamus McKinney

A cross border appeal has been launched for information about the murder of Derry man Andrew Allen.

The father-of -two was shot dead by dissident vigilante group, Republican Action Against Drugs (RAAD) at the house he was living in on the outskirts of Buncrana in Donegal in February 2012.

Claims by the vigilante group that Mr Allen was involved in the drugs trade have always been denied by his family.

Gardai investigating Mr Allens murder believe that up to 12 people were involved in the attack.

Now in an unprecedented move, Crimestoppers has launched a cross border appeal for information about the killing.

Supporting the appeal, Mr Allens mother Donna Smith said she was pleased that the investigation into her sons murder was still active.

Ms Smith urged anyone with information to pass it on through Crimestoppers.

I understand you may be scared but for those of us who cannot move on, who have not had any justice for Andrew, Im asking you to help us.

Crimestoppers has also revealed a reward for information about Mr Allen's murder has been made available.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Crimestoppers in Northern Ireland on 0800 555111 or in the Republic on 1800 250025.
