Two teens arrested and charged with murder

Two Limerick teenagers were arrested early this morning and charged with the murder of an 18 year old on the Old Cratloe Rd. last November.

The two teens, Shane Kelly, 18, and Richard Treacy, 18, were before Judge Tom O’Donnell later in the morning where he was informed that they were both arrested following directions of the Director of Public Prosecutions.

The victim, Darren Coughlin was walking along the Old Cratloe Road at around 10pm last one night in November, when he was set upon by a group of men. He was chased a short distance and then kicked a number of times in the head and upper body. He was rushed to hospital but died a few days after. A murder inquiry was launched.

The teens will appear again on October 5th.
