Two questioned and released over killing of Limerick teenager

The 19-year-old was bludgeoned to death near his parents’ home in 2007.

TWO MEN ARRESTED yesterday as part of the investigation into the murder of Jeffrey Hannon in Limerick in 2007 have been released by gardaí.

The 19-year-old was found dead not far from his parents’ home at O’Malley Park in November of that year.

Local media reports said he had been bludgeoned to death, suffering injuries to his body and head.

Aman in his 40s and another in his 20s were arrested in the Limerick area yesterday -and taken for questioning to separate garda stations.

They were released without charge last night – and a file is to be prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions.

20 people have been arrested to date as part of the investigation into the young man’s death.

With reporting by Daragh Brophy.
