THREE people have been arrested by police investigating the murder of a Northern Ireland man in England at the weekend.
William O’Hara (60), originally from Castlerock, died following an “altercation” in Yorkshire.
The incident occurred at the Thurnscoe Coronation Working Men’s Club in Stuart Street, Barnsley, at 5.00 pm on Sunday.
Mr O’Hara died later in hospital from his injuries.
A post mortem is due to be carried out to establish the cause of death.
A 53-year-old man arrested on suspicion of murder is being questioned by detectives.
A 38-year-old man, arrested on suspicion of burglary and perverting the course of justice, and a 33-year-old woman. detained on suspicion of perverting the course of justice, have been released on police bail pending further police inquiries.
It could be a number of weeks before the remains of Mr O’Hara are returned to his grieving family in England because of how the coroner’s offices operate in England.
