Crime king blasted to death in city pub[/size]
THE most notorious gangland boss in the State was shot dead in a Dublin pub last night as he sat drinking with a couple of friends.
Armed robber and drug trafficker Eamon Dunne (33) was regarded as “public enemy number one” as gardai prepared files for the Director of Public Prosecutions under the new anti-gangland legislation.
His gang was included in the first three files sent to the DPP in December and Dunne was expected to face a charge of directing a criminal organisation, which carries a maximum life imprisonment sentence.
Dunne, from Dunsoghly Drive, Ratoath Road in Finglas in west Dublin, was socialising in the Fassaugh House pub at Fassaugh Avenue in Cabra when he was hit.
Eye witnesses said the gunman and an accomplice walked into the pub around 10pm, and singled out Dunne in the bar.
The gunman fired up to half a dozen shots, possibly from a 9mm handgun, and he was hit in the head. He died almost immediately.
Gardai arrived shortly and sealed off the pub. They recovered a number of shell casings on the ground beside the body.
Officers established that four men arrived in a silver coloured car outside the pub and two of them stayed outside while the gunman and his accomplice casually walked into the bar.
The gunman wore dark clothing, had a hoodie pulled over his face, and as Dunne slumped to the floor he and his accomplices jumped into the waiting car, which sped away.
Gardai said the shooting bore the hallmarks of a “contract” hit. Dunne had been among a group of 20 people celebrating a fortieth birthday party when the shooting took place.
