Man still in custody in Paul Quinn murder inquiry

Gardai in Monaghan are continuing to question a man this morning in connection with the murder of Paul Quinn last year.

The man, who was arrested last night, is the 14th person to be detained as part of the cross-border investigation into the killing of Mr Quinn last October.

All the other detainees have subsequently been released without charge.

Mr Quinn, 21, from Cullyhanna in south Armagh, was beaten to death by a gang of men after being lured to a remote farmhouse in Co Monaghan.

His family have blamed IRA members in south Armagh for the murder.
