A Limerick man who was being questioned by gardai in connection with the murder of Robert Sheehan in Bunratty has been released without charge.

The 59-year-old, who is from the Moyross area of the city, was arrested in Limerick city centre on Thursday afternoon.

He was detained at Shannon garda station under Section 50 of the Offences Against the State Act before being released over the weekend.

Investigating gardai say the man was questioned on suspicion of conspiracy to murder Robert Sheehan, who died last August after he was shot while attending his brother’s wedding at the Bunratty Castle Hotel.

Two other men from Moyross were arrested in Cork city shortly after the killing and three other Limerick men were arrested last month.

All of them were released without charge.

To date, nobody has been charged in connection with the murder of the 26-year-old father-of-one, who was from Moyross.
