The late Louise Muckell

THE man who was arrested on Tuesday in connection with the alleged fatal assault of former County Limerick music teacher last July has been released without charge.

The man, who is aged in his fifties, was arrested as part of the ongoing investigation into the death of Louise Muckell who was found seriously injured in her home in Cois Deel, Rathkeale on July 19, 2022.

The 54 year-old, who taught at the former Sisters of Mercy secondary school in Rathkeale, died in University Hospital Limerick a day later.

In a statement issued last night, a Garda spokeswoman said that a file will be prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions and investigations are ongoing.

Gardaí want to speak with anyone who was in the Windmill Street area of Limerick City or the Cois Deel area of Rathkeale between Sunday, July 17, 2022, and Tuesday, July 19, 2022, who observed any activity which drew their attention”.
