Appeal for witnesses to fatal Dublin shooting

A post mortem examination has been carried out on the body of a 34-year-old man who was murdered in Dublin on Friday night.

Eamon Dunne was shot six times in the head and body at the Faussagh House pub in Cabra.

It is thought four gunmen were involved in the attack, which was witnessed by the victim's 17-year-old daughter.

Gardaí have appealed for witnesses to come forward.

Story from RTÉ News:

One of Dublin's untouchables was gunned down on Friday night.

You can feel the tension as people wait for the backlash which will come soon.
It took some balls to put on a balaclava and walk into a crowded pub and take out their victim, not that I admire them, but they must have had nerves of steel.

Dublin has become like Chicago in the days of Al Capone...

Every few years it come to the front in dramatic fashion.

The exams are moving into gear, my youngest has his leaving cert exams over the next few weeks..

Listen kids the results do not matter..Time after time the school dunce ranks high in the rich list. Richard Branson was no good at school..Sean Quinn left school at 15 and once was the richest man in Ireland.
Richard Elman left school at 15 his fortune is estimated at 1.11 billion Quid.

So boys and girls do your best, even if it is not good enough.

Few people ever gave out that Stephen Hawking was no good at football or that David Beckham was thick at arithmetic, we all have our skills.

I just ask. Is this the car of the guy who did the exams and took the job?.
Or is it the car of the guy who saw a chance and took it?


  1. "In America they would be in jail"? Oh, I don't know, referring to our department of treasury as jail seems to be a bit harsh. They'll be out and serving on all the right boards in a few years anyway.
