GARDAÍ HAVE CHARGED a man in connection to the Elaine O’Hara murder investigation.

The male aged in his 40s, being held at Blackrock Gardaí, is due to appear before Dún Laoghaire District Court this morning at 10.30am.

The man was held overnight for questioning.


The 41-year-old man in custody, was held under the provisions of Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act for which he could be detained for up to 24 hours.

He was arrested yesterday morning at 7.10am.

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.
