Gardaí have arrested two men as part of an investigation into the murders of Eoin O’Connor and Anthony Keegan.

Both men were arrested in the Cavan area this morning, June 11.

Detectives believe that Mr O'Connor (32) and Mr Keegan (33) were murdered when they went to collect a drug debt in Co Cavan on April 22.
