Gardaí in Drogheda searching in March in relation to murder of teenage boy in January 2020.

Three arrested in relation to murder of teenager in Drogheda last year

The 17-year-old was murdered in January 2020.

THREE MEN HAVE been arrested by gardaí investigating the murder of a teenage boy in January 2020. 

The men, aged in their 20s, 40s and 50s, were arrested this morning following searches carried out at a number of premises in Dublin.

The men are detained in several Dublin garda stations. 

The teenager cannot be named at the moment due to a court ruling last year preventing child murder victims from being named publicly.

This will change after this Friday when the amendments to legislation are commenced.
