GARDAI have released without charge two Limerick men who were being questioned about the murder of Robert Sheehan in Bunratty last Sunday.

The father-of-one from Moyross, who was due to turn 22 today, died in hospital after he was shot several times while attending his brother’s wedding reception.

Two men, who are also from Moyross, were arrested in Cork city a number of hours after the shooting.

They were questioned at Ennis and Shannon garda stations before being released without charge this morning.

Investigating gardai say a file will be prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions in relation to the gangland-style shooting.

At Robert Sheehan’s funeral mass at Corpus Christi church yesterday, his father, Patrick said his family do not want any retaliation for the killing.

However, tensions remain high in Moyross and armed gardai have been mounting additional patrols in the area since Sunday’s shooting.
