A MAN IN his 40s has been arrested in relation to the murder of teenager Keane Mulready-Woods earlier this year.

The man was arrested by gardaí this morning, and is currently being detained at Drogheda garda station.

17-year-old Mulready-Woods, from Drogheda, was last seen alive in the town on 12 January.
