A MAN IN his 50s who was arrested earlier today in connection with the murder of  62-year-old Cathal Sweeney has now been released without charge.

He was taken from the scene by ambulance to St. James’ Hospital but was later pronounced dead.

A 31-year-old man was arrested at the scene and is currently before the courts in connection with the investigation.
