The Taoiseach and Justice Minister will be briefed in Drogheda today about the murder of Keane Mulready Woods.

The 17-year-old was murdered as part of the ongoing gang feud in the Co Louth town.

Gardaí are appealing to people not to share videos and photos that appear to show Mr Mulready-Wood's final moments.

They announced last night that they are still awaiting confirmation from Forensic Science Ireland on the partial human remains discovered at Trinity Terrace, Dublin 3 on Wednesday.

They said that Keane was last seen in Drogheda by his family on Sunday at around 6pm.

They said he was wearing a navy Hugo Boss tracksuit, black Hugo Boss runners (brown sole, black laces), a red/orange Canada Goose jacket and a Gucci baseball cap - items of clothing which have not been recovered.

Gardaí are asking if anyone can assist with information as to where the clothes are now.

They are also seeking help from the public in tracing the movements of the blue Volvo V40 SE LUX 1.4 diesel which was recovered partially burnt out yesterday.
