Irish minister for justice Alan Shatter expresses alarm at rise in gang style murders in Ireland
Shatter concerned about crime, confident in Gardai
Senior Dublin-based detectives with knowledge of the 11-year-old feud behind Eglington’s murder recalled that it has already caused more than a dozen deaths.
Eglington was regarded as a “marked man,” and had survived an attempt on his life in a pub shooting while another plot to kill him at the Passport Office in Dublin was also botched.
As a 15-year-old, he was detained in a juvenile detention center for four years for being a passenger in a stolen car which was deliberately driven into the back of a Garda vehicle, killing Gardai Tony Tighe and Michael Padden, on the Stillorgan dual-carriageway in April 2002.
Declan O’Reilly, from Crumlin, Dublin, was murdered 12 hours later on the South Circular Road in Dublin. His 10-year-old son was walking just ahead of him when the attack happened.
A gunman got out of a nearby car, fired a number of shots from a handgun at O’Reilly and was then driven from the scene. The car was later found on fire a short distance away.
While O’Reilly was associated with gang members who have been involved in a feud between rival factions in Crumlin and Drimnagh in Dublin for more than a decade, Gardai believe his murder may have been linked to a prison death.
O’Reilly stabbed Derek Glennon, 24, to death in Mountjoy Prison in 2007. He was acquitted of murder after he said it was self-defense.
Gardai believe his murder this week may have been in revenge for that prison killing.
