Gardai in appeal over Limerick murder

Gardai in Limerick have appealed for information on the murder of Mark Moloney in Limerick on Saturday.

The 40 year old, who was local to the Garryowen area, was shot a number of times by the passenger of a TS registered Black Toyota Celica. A car matching the description was found a short time later burned out in Drombanna.

The shooting took place in broad daylight at 2.45pm on Saturday near Garryowen Foodstores.

Inspector John Reilly from Henry Street Garda Station said the victim was known to them, however he said "there's no evidence to suggest at this stage that there's any connection with the feuding incidents or activity in Limerick."

Inspector Reilly added: "We're keeping an open mind on the matter. We're searching for a motive for this attack. We're interested in speaking to any person that was in the Garryowen area between 2pm and 3pm [on Saturday] that may have seen the black Toyota Celica car or its occupants, that heard or saw anything suspicious or that may have heard or seen this shooting."
