GARDAÍ HAVE SAID that the man arrested in connection with the murder of Ciarán Noonan has been released without charge this morning.

Noonan’s body was found in a Co Meath field on Friday.

The 29-year-old had been missing since 20 October after he was abducted from the East Wall area of Dublin in the middle of the afternoon.

Upon discovery and identification of the body, gardaí upgraded their investigation to a murder inquiry and arrested a man in his 20s yesterday morning.

The man, arrested in north Dublin, has this morning been released without charge and a file has been sent to the Director of Public Prosecutions, gardaí say.
