Gardaí investigating the murder of a gangland gunman Tristan Sherry in a Dublin restaurant on Christmas Eve have made a third arrest.

It comes as they continue to question an 18-year-old man in relation the killing at Browne’s Steakhouse in Blanchardstown on the night of Saturday, December 24.

The third arrest was made on Wednesday evening.

“Gardaí arrested a male on the evening of Wednesday 3rd January 2024 as part of the investigation into the murder of Tristan Sherry that occurred at a premises on the Main Street in Blanchardstown, Dublin 15 at approximately 8pm on Sunday, 24th December 2023,” a garda spokesperson said this morning.

“He is currently detained under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act, 1984, at a Garda Station in West Dublin.

“This male is the third arrest made as part of this investigation.”

The garda spokesperson added that the teenager arrested is still being detained under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act, 1984, at a Garda station in West Dublin.

Tristan Sherry (26), a father of one, was killed after opening fire inside the steakhouse in Blanchardstown on the night of Saturday, December 24.

A 48-year-old man was struck several times after Sherry opened fire with a sub-machine gun. The victim’s condition has deteriorated in recent days.

Sherry was disarmed at the scene and was then fatally assaulted.

Last night’s arrest marks the third so far in the investigation.

Michael Andrecut (22), with an address at Sheephill Avenue, Dublin 15 appeared at Dublin District Court last Saturday charged in relation to the case.

He faces a single charge that he murdered Sherry on the evening of December 24.
