Gardaí have arrested a man in his 20s as part of the investigation into the murder of Kane McCormack last year. The 24-year-old, who lived in Clonee, Co Meath, was shot dead in a killing believed to be linked to an ongoing feud between criminal gangs. His body was found in a field in the town of Dunboyne last year in December. As part of the investigation into Mr McCormack’s murder, gardaí carried out two searches early this morning in Clondalkin. The arrested man is being detained at Ashbourne Garda Station.
Gardaí and medical professionals are appealing to the woman who gave birth to a baby girl, whose body was found on beach in Dublin on Saturday, to come forward in order to get help. The body of the full-term baby was discovered on part of the beach in Balbriggan, known as Bell's Beach.
According to the gardai, there was no foul play involved. Garda Inspector Brian Downey has reassured the mother that she is not in trouble and that the only concern was her health and welfare. He went on to say that this is not a criminal investigation and that the baby had died some time before delivery. He has urged the mother, or anyone who knows her, to contact gardaí, TUSLA, or a medical professional.
Gardaí are set to interview up to eight security guards today who were attacked at a repossessed home near the town of Strokestown in Co Roscommon in the early hours of yesterday morning. One man is still in hospital after the incident. Gardai believe the incident was planned and highly organised in which a group of masked men with baseball bats broke into the home and blocked the road to and from the building to prevent Gardai from coming to the scene. Local TD’s have condemned the violence but were also critical of how the repossession took place. There have also been calls on KBC Bank Ireland to allow the former residents of the house to return there following their eviction last Tuesday.
It will be mostly dry and dull with a few bright spells this morning.
However, it will become cloudy with outbreaks of rain and drizzle in the afternoon. Afternoon temperatures will be around 9 to 11 degrees.
