Detectives investigating the murder of a biker have arrested a fourth man.

Andrew O'Donoghue, nicknamed Odd, died after he was gunned down at the Road Tramps Motorcycle Club in Co Limerick on Saturday afternoon.

It is understood he was shot in the head.

Gardai said they arrested a man aged in his 40s in Limerick city this morning in connection with their investigation.

He is being held at Henry Street garda station under the provisions of section 50 of the Criminal Justice Act 2007.

Three other men were arrested on Saturday night in the Limerick area over the killing, two in their late 40s and one in his 20s. They can be held for seven days.

Among messages left on the Road Tramps Motorcycle Club Facebook page was one which said the father-of-one had gone to the club to feed cats.

Gardai said the 51-year-old victim was shot at Mountfune, Murroe, a rural part of Co Limerick, at about 3pm and he died later in hospital.

A note on the club's social media page read: "There is one little girl this morning with no father because he was executed yesterday while going to feed clubhouse cats."

Another read: "My brother odd gunned down today by scum. Words cannot explain how gutted I am. My best mate gone."

A Garda spokesman said: "Investigations are continuing."
