A man in his 20’s who was arrested yesterday morning in connection with the death of Joe Deacy outside Swinford last year, was released without charge last night.  

The 21 year old from St Albans in England, who was a regular visitor to Mayo, died in hospital on the 13th August last year.

He had been found with serious head injuries, outside a house in Gortnasillagh near Swinford earlier that weekend.

The alarm was raised by a passer-by, and Joe was taken by ambulance to Mayo University Hospital and later removed to the Beaumont Hospital in Dublin where he passed away.

Gardai arrested a man in his 20’s yesterday and he was released without charge at 11.30pm last night.
