11th arrest in Noonan murder probe

A man has been arrested in connection with the murder of Ciaran Noonan.

The suspect, in his 40s, was detained in Dublin and taken to Store Street Garda Station, where he is being held under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act.

The man is the 11th person to be arrested in connection with the inquiry into the killing of the 29-year-old father of one, whose body was found on farmland in Co Meath earlier this month.

One man has been charged with false imprisonment and has been remanded in custody.

Mr Noonan, who it is believed owed a drug debt, was kidnapped from the East Wall area of Dublin on October 20.

He was murdered and then his body was dumped in a field at Tullaghmeaden, about six miles outside Trim, Co Meath.

It was not discovered until November 4 following a tip-off.
