Heroic Gda Golden was killed by Adrian Crevan Mackin in October 2015, before Crevan Mackin turned the gun on himself.

Siobhan's father, Sean, spoke to RTÉ Investigates about the moments leading up to the death of Gda Golden.

The worried dad attended Omeath garda station in Co Louth on the Sunday of the shooting with his daughter and other family members.

The family had made an appointment with gardai in order for Siobhan to make a statement about a sustained attack which Crevan Mackin had inflicted on her.

During a 12-hour attack Crevan Mackin beat Siobhan, cutting her on her arms and legs and making threats against her and her family.

After the statement had been made Siobhan, Gda Golden and her dad made their way to the home she had shared with Crevan Mackin.

“It happened that quick, inside about two minutes," Mr Phillips said.

"He said 'what are you doing here?' Then Tony Golden said 'Siobhan is here to collect her things'. He didn’t answer Tony.

"Then I heard bang, bang, bang, bang, bang, bang. I was running, zig zagging... I was actually shouting the names of my kids [thinking that I would be killed],” he said, growing emotional as he recalled the ordeal.

A documentary broadcast by RTÉ has raised questions about why Crevan Mackin was not convicted on weapons charges after he admitted to weapons possessions during an interrogation.

His family have claimed he was an informer and have questioned why he was freed on bail after he was arrested for buying weapons online.

The programme also carried claims Mackin was sent to Portlaoise Prison to “spy” on the Real IRA and was later released on reduced bail after republicans refused him access to their wing.

His sister said that in the aftermath of being imprisoned he became paranoid and violent toward his partner.
