Gardai have increased monitoring of a violent dissident republican “vigilante” group, who have been ‘patrolling’ housing estates in the Irish midlands and operating closely with an INLA faction in Northern Ireland.

Some members of the group, which has links to the INLA, are former close associates of murdered Real IRA terror chief Alan Ryan, who was gunned down in September 2012.
