Man is shot dead in latest Dublin gangland feud hit

By Ed Carty

A man in his 60s associated with gangland boss Gerry 'The Monk' Hutch has been shot dead as his partner looked on.

The victim, named locally as Noel Kirwan, was targeted by a lone gunman shortly after he pulled into the driveway of a house in the Ronanstown area of Dublin just after 5pm.

The 62-year-old, originally from the north inner city, was hit by several bullets fired into the driver's side of the Ford Mondeo.

The killer escaped in a white Peugeot Partner van that was found burnt out a short time later behind the nearby Neilstown shops.

The Hutch family has been embroiled in a bitter feud with the Kinahan crime cartel that turned bloody in September 2015 when Gary Hutch was shot dead in Spain. At least 10 people have been killed in Ireland and Spain as a result.
