Mr Manley was last seen alive around lunchtime on October 10.

A postmortem found he had suffered serious head wounds.

Supt Mick Finn of Anglesea Street Garda station said he was attacked with some form of blunt implement.

It is believed the former barman was killed in a robbery as his flat screen television was missing.

Mr Manley - who suffered from arthritis - was killed in the house where he had lived for the past 20 years.

He was well known in the city for working in the popular Sextant Bar on Albert Quay.

A 23-year-old man was arrested by gardai on Friday night and taken to the Bridewell Garda station in Cork for questioning.
