Two men in their 30s were arrested on Wednesday (26 January) in connection with the incidents, but one was released from custody, and a file will be prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions.

The other was charged as part of the investigation, and is scheduled to appear before Kilkenny District Court on Thursday morning (27 January).

A post mortem of the deceased has been concluded. Post mortem results are not released due to operational reasons.
