The Garda Press Office has this morning (Sunday) released a statement on the latest regarding the investigation into the murder of Detective Garda Adrian Donohoe.

It reads, 'A man arrested in Dundalk on 26/2/2018 by Gardaí investigating the murder of Detective Garda Adrian Donohoe, was released without charge last night (3/3/2018). A file will be prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions.

'Gardaí are continuing to detain a man in his 20s arrested in Dublin on the 25/2/2018 at Dundalk Garda Station. The investigation is ongoing and further updates will follow.'

The released man, aged in his 60s, was arrested in Dundalk on Monday evening last in connection with the 2013 murder at Lordship Credit Union.

He was being held and questioned at Balbriggan Garda Station. 

However, the man in his 20s - arrested outside Wheatfield Prison in Dublin last Sunday night - remains in custody. He has been in custody for almost seven days - the maximum detention period - and news over whether he will be charged or released is expected soon.
