Dangerous criminal back behind bars


23-year-old fugitive Lee McDonnell escaped from custody while being transported to a hospital appointment last December, and had been on the run since.

He was spotted in Ronanstown yesterday, and though he attempted evasion, Gardai caught up with him after a chase. He has been brought back to Portlaoise Prison.

McDonnell is serving 10 years in prison for a number of violent crimes.
