A MAN IN his 30s who was arrested yesterday in connection with the murder of Irene White in Dundalk in 2005 is to be charged at 2pm today.

The man will appear at Dundalk District Court, and will be charged with the murder of the mother-of-three, a Garda statement said.

He was arrested in the Monaghan area yesterday in connection with the ongoing investigation, which featured in an episode of RTÉ’s Crimecall in November of last year.

Irene White was murdered at her home – known as Ice House – on 6 April 2005.

She was found with multiple stab wounds by her elderly mother.

On the day of her murder, White left her home at around 8.50am and dropped her three children off to school for 9am. She then returned to her home where she began washing up after breakfast.

Her mother, who lived at the back of the property, called to the house at 12.30pm where she found her daughter lying dead in the kitchen.
