Gardaí have renewed their appeal for information on the murder of Paul Quinn 14 years after the Co Armagh man's death.

The 21-year-old from Cullyhanna was beaten to death in a barn close to Castleblayney, Co Monaghan, on October 20 2007.

His family said they blame members of the IRA for the killing, but to date no-one has been convicted in relation to the brutal attack.

Nine people have been arrested in the north in relation to Mr Quinn's death, while gardaí have arrested 14 in the Republic to date.

Speaking on Tuesday ahead of the anniversary of the killing, Garda superintendent Gary Walsh said solving the murder as being of the "utmost priority".

"Personal relationships and circumstances of individuals will change over time. People who have information about Paul's murder may now be better placed to come forward and speak with gardaí," he said.
