A man is being questioned about a recent spate of burglaries in County Limerick

One of two men arrested on suspicion of dissident republican activity as part of investigations into the murder of a prison officer in Northern Ireland has been released.

The 51-year-old was detained in the Irish Republic on Monday over the killing of David Black in a drive-by gun attack on the M1 last year.

A second man, aged 34, remains in custody at Cavan Garda Station.

Mr Black, a father of two, was shot dead as he drove from his home in Cookstown, Co Tyrone, to Maghaberry prison just outside Lisburn, Co Antrim.
