    Organising a hit at a caravan park, during the day and during the summer holidays.
    Only a matter of time before someone not involved in this feud is killed.
    Apparently all involved are well known to gardai.
    More powers / resources needed to stop it.

    It is out of control.
    “Speaking to the, a distraught relative described the Drogheda man as “one of the nicest guys in the world”.“He wasn’t a father, but only got married very recently,” he said.“He didn’t deserve this at all, it’s just awful.”
    Branigan, a very close associate of a Louth mob boss, is the first murder victim of the bloody Drogheda gang feud, which has escalated over the past year.Originally from Ballsgrove in Drogheda, Branigan had a number of convictions including for assault, burglary and criminal damage.
    Nothing like a death to make an angel out of a demon….

    This is my local shop. My wife and kids could have been sitting outside. It is beyond grim to consider what may have happened. What I find strange is that someone who was convicted of assault, burglary and criminal damage can be referred to as “a lovely guy”. Well known in the area that he was a drug dealer. A matter of time before someone innocent is killed.

      Mine too neighbour, my other half was down there that morning.
      We moved here to get away from this kind of poo, was like beirut-on-sea.
      The recent expansion at aisling is attracting the rif raf.
      The guys who own it should consider who their customers are and the consequences, i cant but help feel they are culpable in attracting this element around the place, if they have any conscience they should wind it up and replace it with houses.
      They would make a killing (pardon the expression)
      Wont stop these lads killing each other, bit at least we wont have to put up with it.

    In the last photo the circle drawn to highlight the bullet-hole seems to have missed the mark.
