Gardaí have arrested a 45-year-old Romanian man on suspicion of the murder of Rose Hanrahan.
He was extradited from the United Kingdom on Thursday and arrested at around 4.00pm at Dublin Airport.
He was taken to Henry Street Garda station.
Rose Hanrahan (78) was murdered in her home at Thomondgate, Co Limerick in December 2017.
The investigation identified a 45-year-old man from Romania as the sole suspect for her murder.
In January 2019, a Garda investigation file was forwarded to the State solicitor and sent to the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP).
Directions were received to charge this man for the murder of Rose Hanrahan.
Gardaí obtained a European Arrest Warrant before the High Court, which was circulated through Interpol to British authorities.
This warrant was carried out by Sussex Police in July last year.
The man appeared before Westminster Magistrates Court in England on January 2nd, where his extradition was ordered.
Investigating Gardaí and family liaison officers have informed the family.
This man is set to appear before Limerick District Court later.
