The two men, aged 43 and 34, were arrested over a year after Irene White, 43, was found stabbed to death at her home in Demesne Road, Dundalk in April 2005.

Both are being detained at Kells Garda station in Co Meath under the Offences Against the State Act, 1939 and it is believed they are being questioned about withholding information.

Ms White was in her kitchen when her attacker broke into the house and stabbed her.

Her body was found by her mother.
