A MAN has been arrested in connection with the murder of Ciaran Noonan.

The 30-year-old suspect was detained in Dublin this afternoon and taken to Store Street Garda station.

It is the tenth arrest over the killing of the 29-year-old father of one, whose body was found on farmland in Co Meath earlier this month. No one has yet been charged.

Mr Noonan, who it is believed owed a drug debt, was kidnapped from the East Wall area of Dublin on October 20.

He was murdered before being dumped in a field at Tullaghmeaden, about six miles outside Trim, Co Meath.

His body was not discovered until November 4 after a tip-off.

Gardai said the man is being held and questioned under section 30 of the Offences against the State Act.
