Man arrested in Dublin over 1987 murder of Belfast men

Police in the Republic of Ireland have arrested a man in connection with the double murder of two INLA members more than 30 years ago.

Belfast men Thomas 'Ta' Power and John Gerard O’Reilly were shot as they sat in the lounge of the Rossnaree, Hotel in Dorgheda, Co Louth in January 1987.

The shooting is thought to have been related to an internal INLA feud.

Gardaí in Drogheda have confirmed that this morning they arrested a male in his 60s in connection with the deaths.

The man was arrested in the Dublin area.
