Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

NEW units of heav­ily armed gar­dai are on the streets of Dublin amid fears more death threats are cir­cu­lat­ing in a gang­land feud which has claimed three lives.

In the north in­ner city, less than a mile from where the lat­est vic­tim was gunned down on Mon­day night, a high pro­file check­point was in place for sev­eral hours yes­ter­day.

Ed­die Hutch ( above), aged in his 50s and a brother of Gerry Hutch, nick­named The Monk, was shot dead in his home off Dublin’s North Strand in an ap­par­ent re­tal­i­a­tion for the fa­tal gun at­tack at the Re­gency Ho­tel last Fri­day in which David Byrne from Crum­lin in the south of the city was mur­dered.
