TWO men who were arrested as part of a murder investigation into the fatal stabbing of a man in Kildare earlier this month have been released without charge.

David Boland died after suffering multiple stab wounds during a row in Athy in the early hours of November 1.

Two men, aged in their 20s, were arrested in Athy on Friday afternoon and held at Kildare and Newbridge Garda Stations.

They were both released without charge this afternoon.

A garda spokesman said a file will be prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions.

Last week, Calvin Cullen (20), of Greenhills, Athy, Co Kildare was arrested and subsequently charged with Mr Boland’s murder.
