Police have arrested two more men in the Republic of Ireland over a fatal shooting in Dublin on Friday.

Keith Walker, 36, a father of three, from Tir na Ri Road, Clondalkin died.

And another man was shot in the arm at Shelerin Road, Clonsilla at about 18:00 local time.

His injuries are not life-threatening. The men were members of a pigeon club who were meeting in the yard at the time.

On Saturday evening, two more men, aged 36 and 38, were also arrested.
