THERE WAS A significant garda presence in the Donaghmede/Balgriffin area of Dublin this afternoon as Real IRA supporters gathered to mark the anniversary of former boss Alan Ryan.
The 31-year-old was shot dead in a housing estate in Clongriffin on 3 September last year.
Gardaí told TheJournal.ie that the event passed off smoothly, with just one arrest for a public order offence. About 200 people attended the march.
A garda liaison has been in contact with the Ryan family in recent weeks. The march began at the family home in Grange Abbey before proceeding to Balgriffin’s Fingal Cemetery.
