The man arrested this morning is currently being detained under a Section 42 warrant of the Criminal Justice Act 1999.

A man and woman were arrested by gardaí investigating the murder earlier this week. 

They remain detained under Section 50 of the Criminal Justice Act 2007 at Drogheda and Balbriggan garda stations.
