The community in the old parish of Louth has set up a fund which has resulted in a reward for substantial information relating to the death of 35-year-old Keith Byrne.
Mr Byrne was killed about 200 yards from his home at Carnalogue, Louth Village.
He was walking home in the early hours on the morning of Sunday 11 May.
He was the victim of a hit and run. His hearbroken family have appealed to the driver of the car to come forward.
Speaking this week, Mr Colin Hoey, Keith’s brother-in-law, said money was still coming in and a “substantial reward” has now been set up.
“People decided they would like to do something,” he said.
“And the fund has the full backing of the Byrne family.
“In two or three years time, if nothing is claimed, the money will be returned or, if people wish, donated to charity.”
