Two men have been arrested in connection with the fatal shooting of Dublin man Stephen O'Halloran in January.

Gardai investigating the incident arrested two men in the Tallaght area on Tuesday.

The two men are aged 25 years and 19 years and have both been detained at Tallaght Garda Station.

Mr O'Halloran was killed during a shooting at Kilmartin Drive in Tallaght, Dublin 24, shortly before midnight on the 19th of January. Gardai on patrol in the area responded to what appeared to be gunshots and discovered the body of the 20-year-old man in a car in the driveway of a house.
