Police in Dublin have arrested two men in connection with the murder of a man in Kilkeel, County Down.

A man in his twenties was arrested on Wednesday after he made enquires about applying for a passport at a Garda station in the city.

A second man was arrested in a follow-up search in north Dublin.

Ukrainian born, Dmytro Grysunov, 29, was shot dead during a clash between two groups of foreign nationals at Rooney Park in Kilkeel last Saturday.

A 32-year-old woman appeared in court in Newry on Friday charged in connection with the murder.

Lineta Kundrotiene of Ronney Park, Kilkeel is charged with assisting an offender, perverting the course of justice and withholding information.

She was released on bail.

Three men aged 31, 36 and 26 have also been released on police bail pending further enquiries.

It is believed a dispute between the two groups started when a house was attacked at Haywood Way at 2100 BST on 23 April.

The trouble then moved to Rooney Park, where at least two shots were fired in the street.

The attackers then fled the scene on foot.
