A MAN IN his 30s has been arrested in connection with the capital murder of garda Adrian Donohoe in 2013.

In a statement, gardaí said the man was arrested in the Dundalk area at around 8.30am this morning and is being held at Dundalk garda station under Section 50 of the Criminal Justice Act 2007.

Detective Garda Adrian Donohoe was on active duty when he was killed on 25 January 2013 at Lordship Credit Union, Bellurgan, Co Louth.
