A man is due to appear before Tullamore District Court around now charged with the murder of Christy Daly.

Gardai investigating the murder of Mr Daly at Bog Lane, Clara on December 29, 2013 charged the man who is to appear before the court earlier today.

The man is the third person to be charged in relation to the murder investigation.

As a result of the extensive investigation, two further men aged 24 and 25 were arrested in Dublin this morning (Wednesday) and are currently detained at Tullamore Garda Station.

This brings to eight the number of people arrested to date in relation to the investigation.

The arrests resulted from a targeted investigation into an organised crime gang trafficking drugs throughout the midlands and the west of Ireland. 

The Garda investigation into the death of Mr Daly has to date included 50 searches and 135 people has so far been interviewed. Inquiries in relation to the matter are continuing.
