Gardai have arrested a man in his late 20s in connection with the murder of Eddie Hutch Snr on February 8 2016.

The man arrested is currently detained under section 30 of the Offences Against the State Act 1939 as amended in a Garda Station in North Dublin.

Eddie Hutch Snr, father-of-five, was shot at his home at Popular Row, Dublin 3 as part of the Kinahan-Hutch fued.

The 58-year-old Dublin based taxi-driver died due to gunshot wounds to the head.

Eddie Hutch, who is the brother of Gerry 'The Monk' Hutch, was murdered on February 8, three days after gunmen stormed the Regency Hotel and gunned down David Byrne (33), a close associate of crime boss Daniel Kinahan (37).

Two of the killers are believed to have escaped in a car that was later found dumped on St Patrick's Parade, in nearby Drumcondra.

The murder is being treated as a revenge attack for the killing of David Byrne, considered one of the key lieutenants of the Kinahan cartel.
