Friends and fellow bikers have left sympathy messages online after a biker was shot dead in the Republic.

Andrew O'Donoghue, nicknamed Odd, died after he was gunned down at the Road Tramps Motorcycle Club in Co Limerick yesterday afternoon.

It is understood he was shot in the head.

Among messages left on the club's Facebook page was one which said the father-of-one had gone to the club to feed cats.

Gardai said the 51-year-old was shot at Mountfune, Murroe, a rural part of Co Limerick, on Saturday afternoon at about 3pm and he died later in hospital.

One note on the club's social media page read: "There is one little girl this morning with no father because he was executed yesterday while going to feed clubhouse cats."

Another read: "My brother odd gunned down today by scum. Words cannot explain how gutted I am. My best mate gone."

Gardai said three men were arrested last night in the Limerick area over the killing, two in their late 40s and one in his 20s.

They can be held for seven days.
