A man arrested over the murder of St Albans man Joseph Deacy in Ireland has been released without charge.
Mr Deacy, who played Gaelic football with St Colmcilles Gaelic Athletics Club, was found with head injuries by a passer-by in Swinford, County Mayo on Saturday, August 12 2017.
He died the next day, prompting the Irish police to launch a homicide investigation.
A man in his 20s was released without charge last night after being detained by Irish police in relation to Mr Deacy’s death.
Two men were arrested last November in relation to the death, but they were released without charge.
