A 17-year-old boy has been charged with the murder of gunman Tristan Sherry, who was killed following a shooting in Blanchardstown on Christmas Eve.

He is the third person to be charged with the murder.

The boy, who cannot be named due to his age, was remanded to the Oberstown Children Detention Campus following a brief hearing before Judge Treasa at Dublin District Court this morning.

Detective Garda, Tom McCarrick of Blanchardstown station, told Judge Kelly that the teenager was charged shortly after midnight in the presence of his mother, and he "made no reply to the charge after caution".

Defence solicitor Brian Tunney asked her to adjourn the case so the teenager could appear before the Children's Court in Smithfield on Wednesday morning.

There was no application for bail due to the nature of the charge.

Another man was charged with producing a knife as a weapon during an offence, assault causing harm to Mr Sherry, and violent dirsorder by using or threatening to use violence.

The three men will appear again in court later this month.

Earlier this week, another male was arrested but released from Garda custody pending a file to the Director of Public Prosecutions.
