Man quizzed over double murder in Dublin is released

A man in his 30s arrested over the double murder of a mother-of-six and a young man has been released without charge.

Antoinette Corbally (48) was shot several times at the front of her home on Balbutcher Drive in Ballymun on Dublin's Northside on August 16.

The shots were fired as the intended target, her convicted gunman brother Derek Devoy, fled the scene.

The second victim, 30-year-old locksmith Clinton Shannon, from Swords, Dublin, was hit by a number of bullets as he sat in a car on the street outside the house.

Two other innocent bystanders were injured in the shooting.

Gardai detained a man on Monday, but last night he was released without charge.

A spokesman said a file will now be prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions in the Republic.

Gardai believe the gangland killers lay in wait for more than an hour before launching their deadly attack.

Funerals were held for both of the victims on Thursday.
