Hit-and-run funeral

GARDAI are continuing their search for the driver of a car involved in a fatal hit-and-run incident on the northside of Dublin last week.

Officers last night denied a report that they had arrested a local man for questioning about the incident in which 14-year-old Conor Hickey, of St Attracta Road in Cabra, was killed.

The teen's funeral will take place at the Church of Christ the King in Cabra this morning and local GAA club members will form a guard of honour.

Gardai said they had interviewed a couple of local motorists by consent as part of their inquiries. But an officer said there had been no arrests and none was imminent.
