Murdered crime boss Martin Hyland laid to rest in Dublin

Murdered crime boss Martin 'Marlo' Hyland has been laid to rest at Glasnevin Cemetery in Dublin today.

The 39-year-old, who was one of the country's biggest drug dealers, was shot dead at his niece's home in the Scribblestown estate in Finglas last Tuesday morning.

He was buried today after a funeral mass at Christ the King Church in Cabra which was attended by around 250 people, including a number of well-known criminals.

A number of reporters were threatened with violence and forced out of the church before the ceremony began.

Gardai believe Hyland was shot by his former criminal associates and that these men may have been among the mourners at the funeral.

Meanwhile, the removal of the 20-year-old apprentice plumber who was shot dead along with the crime boss is also due to take place in Dublin this evening.

Anthony Campbell will be laid to rest tomorrow morning at Newlands Cross Cemetery.
