Man held over young father's murder

A 26-year-old man has been arrested over the murder of a young father-of-one whose body was found in the Dublin mountains.

The suspect was detained in the Rathfarnham area of south Dublin by detectives investigating the disappearance and killing of Kenneth Fetherstone.

The 26-year-old was last seen alive on September 22 last year at Landy's Industrial Estate on the Knocklyon Road in Dublin.

He had been driving a red Honda Civic which was found in a lay-by on the N11 near Gorey, Co Wexford, four days later.

Mr Fetherstone's body was found on February 2 this year in a ditch in a boggy area among trees by two people walking on Military Road near an area known as the viewing point.

The arrested man was being questioned in Tallaght Garda station under section 30 of the Offences Against the State Act.
