Two men in their 30s have been arrested by gardaí investigating the murder of David McCreevey in Dublin over ten years ago.

They were detained as part of an operation by detectives from Tallaght and members of the Special Detective Unit.

The men are being held at Tallaght Garda Station.

Mr McCreevey was shot dead outside a neighbour’s house at Belgard Heights in Tallaght in February 2002.

Gardaí say the murder investigation is ongoing.
