TWO MEN REARRESTED in connection with the murder of Vincent Parsons this morning will appear in court charged in relation to the case.

The 34-year-old, who was from Clondalkin, died after an assault in Killinarden in Tallaght on 24 August.

Two men in their 20s were rearrested by gardaí this morning on suspicion of murder.

They were detained at Tallaght Garda Station under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act 1984. Investigations are ongoing, and the men will appear before a sitting of Dublin District Court at 10.30am tomorrow.

Parsons, a father-of-two who worked as a welder, was discovered with serious head injuries by passers-by in Killinarden Estate in Tallaght. He died in hospital two days later.

A post-mortem examination found that he “met a very violent death”.

Anyone with information has been asked to contact Tallaght Garda Station on 01 666 6000, or the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111.
