A man in his early 20’s has been arrested in connection with the ongoing investigation into the death of Joe Deacy.

The 21 year old from St Albans in England, who was a regular visitor to Mayo,  died in hospital on the 13th August last year.

He had been found with serious head injuries, outside a house in Gortnasillagh near Swinford earlier that weekend.

The alarm was raised by a passer-by, and Joe was taken by ambulance to Mayo University Hospital and later removed to the Beaumont Hospital in Dublin where he passed away.

Gardai arrested a man in his 20’s this morning and he is being questioned at Claremorris Garda Station under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act.
