POLICE in the UK have arrested a man on suspicion of the murder of Ennistymon-born 87-year-old Thomas O’Halloran in west London this week.

The 44-year-old man was arrested at an address in Southall, west London, this Thursday morning according to Metropolitan Police.

Police were called just after 4pm on Tuesday to Runnymede Gardens, at the junction with Cayton Road, Greenford to reports of a man with stab wounds. Officers responded and gave emergency first aid until the arrival of the London Ambulance Service and London’s Air Ambulance.

Despite the best efforts of the emergency services, Mr O’Halloran was pronounced dead at the scene. His family have been informed and they are being supported by specialist officers.

A spokesperson for the Met told the Press Association, “I would like to thank the public for their overwhelming support following this horrific incident. As a result of the release of a CCTV image yesterday, an arrest has been made and this investigation is progressing at pace.

“Mr O’Halloran’s family have been updated with this development and continue to be supported by specially trained officers.”
