Four men are due to appear in court in Cavan this morning (Tuesday) charged in connection with the abduction of Fermanagh businessman Kevin Lunney.

The four men, aged between 25 and 66, are due before Virginia District Court after they were arrested last week and being detained in Monaghan and Dublin Garda stations.

Mr. Lunney, a director at Quinn Industrial Holdings (QIH) in Derrylin, was abducted in September near his Kinawley home and tortured before being dumped two and a half hours later in Cavan.
