Eddie Fullerton, a father of six, was shot dead by loyalist paramilitaries at his home in Buncrana in May 1991.

The UDA carried out the attack on the 56-year-old builder and republican politician.

Gardaí from the Donegal division arrested the man, 56, yesterday morning in relation to the murder investigation.

The man, who was detained shortly after 10am, remained in custody at Letterkenny Garda Station on Sunday evening. He was released without charge this morning.

A file is now set to be prepared by the Director of Public Prosecutions.

On the 30th anniversary of Fullerton’s murder earlier this year, Sinn Féin President Mary Lou McDonald called for an independent inquiry into the circumstances of the shooting.
