GARDAÍ HAVE ARRESTED a third man in connection to a fatal assault during a funeral at a cemetery in Co Kerry.

Thomas Dooley, aged in his 40s, was killed at Rathass Cemetery in Tralee last week.

Gardaí investigating the incident arrested a man this evening, the third arrest in the investigation to date.

The man, also in his 40s, is being detained under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act 1984 at Tralee Garda Station.

Gardaí and emergency services attended the scene last week at the cemetery, where they found Thomas Dooley fatally wounded.
