A 41-YEAR-OLD man has been arrested in connection with the murder of Elaine O’Hara.

The man was arrested this morning and is being held at Blackrock Garda station under the provisions of Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act for which he can be detained for up to 24 hours.

The remains of 36-year-old childcare assistant Elaine O’Hara were found in the Dublin mountains near Rathfarnham last month over a year after she went missing from her home in Killiney.

After the discovery of her remains, Gardaí had issued several renewed appeals for information on her disappearance including a request for anyone who may have spoken to her on the day she went missing 22 August 2012.

Information was also sought by investigators from anyone who may have seen her turquoise Fiat Punto which was found by gardaí two days after she went missing.
