A 29-year-old man has been charged over the murder of Shane Rossiter

Gardai investigating a gangland-style shooting in a rural Co Tipperary village have charged a 29-year-old man.

He is due to appear before a special sitting of Clonmel District Court on Sunday charged in connection with the murder of Shane Rossiter.

Two other men being questioned about the killing remain in police custody, a garda spokesman said.

Mr Rossiter, who had drug and burglary convictions, became the 14th victim of gun crime this year when he was shot dead on October 17 at a house just yards from a church in Golden.

He was rushed to South Tipperary General Hospital in Clonmel, where he was pronounced dead.

Mr Rossiter's teenage brother Brian died 10 years ago after he fell into a coma in garda custody in their hometown of Clonmel.
