A 24-year-old man arrested in connection with the murder of Donna Cleary in north Dublin over the weekend has died in Garda custody.

The man, who is believed to be from the Finglas area of Dublin, was among five people arrested in Kildare on Sunday night in connection with the fatal shooting of the 22-year-old mother of one.

Gardaí said today that he complained about headaches while in custody yesterday and was seen by a doctor three times.

He was subsequently taken to Beaumont Hospital, but was later brought back to Coolock Garda Station for further questioning.

He fell ill again this morning and was pronounced dead shortly after being taken back to Beaumont by ambulance at 3am.

Two senior gardaí, one from outside the Dublin region, have been appointed to investigate the death.

Meanwhile, the other three men and the woman arrested in connection with the murder investigation remain in Garda custody.
