Uachtarán CLG John Horan has extended the sympathies of the membership of the Association to the family of the late Det Garda Colm Horkan following his death in the line of duty on Wednesday night.
He said: "The strength of the GAA is based on the strength of our volunteers and the commitment they make to serve their community, and Colm Horkan had those selfless qualities in abundance.
"He is fondly remembered by his friends in Charlestown Sarsfields GAA club where he not only played, but where he continued to help and serve in a wide range of roles off the field.
"His commitment to others came naturally to him, and was an obvious asset in his role as a Garda.
"On behalf of the GAA, our deepest condolences to his family, his club, his community and the membership of An Garda Síochana.
"Go dtuga Dia suaimhneas síoraí da anam."
