Two Kinahan gunmen arrested with gun charged with conspiracy to murder

They will face court in Dublin tomorrow.

TWO KINAHAN GUNMEN arrested on Monday with guns and ammunition will face court tomorrow.

The two were arrested in Ballyfermot on Monday.

Two men, aged 34 and 38, were arrested at the scene on the Kylemore Road in Ballyfermot on suspicion of conspiracy to murder and a loaded gun was recovered.

They were planning to kill a well-known gangland target, officers believe, making that the sixth time the man has escaped death. On one occasion, he was shot in a church car park in Clondalkin, west Dublin. He managed to drive his car to a nearby garda station where he collapsed in the foyer.

The target is not a member of the Hutch gang. However, he was once considered close friends with leading members of the Kinahan’s Dublin operation.

Both arrested men were taken to Crumlin Garda Station and are currently detained under Section 50 of the Criminal Justice Act 2007.

They will face court in Dublin tomorrow.
