GARDA HAVE arrested a woman in connection with their investigation into the abduction of a 29-year-old man from Dublin’s East Wall last week.

The woman aged in her mid-20s was arrested this afternoon and is being held at Store Street Garda Station under Section 30 of the Offences Against the State Act.

Witnesses said that the man, named locally as Ciaran Noonan, was beaten before being bundled into a black Volkswagen Golf on Russell Avenue on Thursday afternoon.

Earlier today, gardaí renewed their appeal for information on the abduction after the discovery of the vehicle used in the kidnapping.

The vehicle involved in the kidnapping has been found at a car park at Killegland apartments in Ashbourne, Co Meath. The car was located on Saturday evening and is being technically examined by gardaí.
