A 19 year-old man was arrested a short time later and remains in Garda custody.

Yesterday a second man was detained. They are both being held at Garda stations in the capital and can be questioned for up to 24 hours.

A Garda spokesperson says; "the investigation is being led by a Senior Investigating Officer and a Garda Family Liaison Officer has been appointed to liaise with the family of the deceased."
