A man arrested on suspicion of the murder of a mother of four remains under armed guard in hospital in Cavan.

The 56-year-old was detained early yesterday, after a nine hour stand-off with gardaí in a pub in Bailieborough.

The man was arrested in connection with the death of Patricia Kierans, who was 54.

Her body was discovered at a house on Thursday evening after a man gardaí were seeking for questioning, produced a firearm at the Square Bar in the town.
