Man released in Louth murder probe

Gardaí are appealing for information about the fatal shooting of a 22-year-old in Louth last Friday.

GARDAÍ HAVE RELEASED without charge a man being questioned over a murder in Co Louth last week.

RTÉ reports that a file is now being prepared for the Director of Public Prosecution.

The victim, 20-year-old Stephen Hanaphy from Coolock in Dublin, was fatally shot on Friday night at a house in the Sliabh Breagh estate in Ardee. Another man remains in hospital after also being injured in the incident.

The Irish Times reports that the incident involved aggravated burglary.

Hanapy is believed to be one of a group of four Dublin men who were involved in a row with two other men in Ardee, Co Louth.

According to reports in the Irish Times, the group travelled to a house in the Sliabh Breagh estate in the town, where they broke windows before forcing their way inside at around 11pm.

Gardaí are appealing for information.
