A man has been charged in connection with a Dublin murder after being extradited from the UK.

The man, in his 30s, was arrested by gardai at Baldonnel aerodrome on Tuesday after his extradition on foot of a European Arrest Warrant.

He was sought by the Irish authorities in connection with the murder of David Douglas, who was shot dead on Bridgefoot Street in Dublin in July 2016 in a killing linked to a gangland feud.

The extradition process was facilitated with assistance from the Irish Air Corps.

The man, who has been detained at Kevin Street Garda station, is due to appear before Dublin Metropolitan district court on Wednesday.
