Gardaí in Dundalk have arrested a 23-year-old man in connection with the murder of Seamus McMahon who was gunned down in March 2010 at Bothar Chroinn, Dundalk.

The man was arrested in Dublin this morning (Wednesday) and is currently being detained at Drogheda Garda Station under the provisions of Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act, 1984.
