A Wicklow man serving a life sentence for murder has been handed down a 10-year sentence for possessing the gun he used to murder a Dublin man in front of his partner and son.

Garrett O'Brien (34) of Clover Hill in Bray was jailed for life earlier this month for murdering father-of-two Séamus O'Byrne on March 13, 2009.

Mr. O'Byrne was shot five times in the driveway of his home at Tymon Park North in Tallaght, before his partner Sharon Rattigan managed to wrestle the weapon from a hooded gunman, getting shot in her own leg in the process.
