GARDAÍ INVESTIGATING THE killing of a 25-year-old man in Tramore, Co Waterford have issued a fresh appeal for information this afternoon.

One person has been arrested in connection with the death last night of Kilkenny man Michael O’Dwyer, who was found seriously injured after gardaí were called to a house at Seafield Holiday Cottages at around 11.30pm.

He was treated at the scene before being taken by ambulance to Waterford Regional Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.

A 32-year-old man was arrested at around 11.40pm last night, and is currently detained under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act at Tramore Garda Station.

A post-mortem examination is being carried out this afternoon at WRH, and a family liaison officer has been appointed.

Gardaí at Tramore are appealing for witnesses —  in particular, they’re looking to speak to anyone who may have seen or heard any suspicious or unusual activity in the holiday home complex between 10pm and midnight last night.

Anyone with information is being asked to contact Tramore Garda Station on 051 391 620 or the Garda Confidential Line 1800 666 111.
