Gardai in Co Laois have arrested three people in connection with the murder of a 35-year-old woman in the midlands 15 years ago.

The two men and a woman are being questioned in connection with the murder of Marie Kilmartin in 1993.

All three were detained in the Portlaoise area and are aged in their 40s and 60s.

Ms Kilmartin, who was originally from Ballinasloe, disappeared in Portlaoise in December 1993.

Her body was found six months later in a bog drain on the Laois-Offaly border.
