Lorcán Ó Snodaigh, 16,  who was missing from his home in Bluebell, Dublin since Saturday has been found safe and well.

He is the son of Sinn Féin TD Aengus Ó Snodaigh.

Gardaí earlier issued an appeal to help trace the teenager.

Aengus Ó Snodaigh thanked all those who had helped the family search for Lorcán and asked for privacy "while we deal with the trauma of the last few days".
