ardaí were called to an apartment complex in Clongriffin, Dublin 13, just before 7am last Sunday.

A source said: “Gardaí were called to the apartments after receiving reports of a man on a balcony intoxicated.
“When they arrived he made no threats but was arrested and taken to Garda Station where he was taken care of before being released. The matter is settled and nothing more will come of it.”
A relative of Mr Keoghan is understood to be staying in a property adjacent to the home where Gardaí have been called to.
