NEW IMAGES OF two of the gunmen involved in Friday’s gangland shooting at a Dublin hotel have emerged today.

Pictures of attackers wearing SWAT-style police uniforms appeared in the immediate aftermath of the raid that killed 32-year-old David Byrne, an associate of the Kinahan crime gang, on Friday.

It’s believed there were three gunmen wearing the SWAT gear. Two other men were also involved – one of whom was wearing a beige cap, the other dressed as a woman and wearing a wig.

Images of the latter two appeared in several papers today.

Gardaí believe a sixth man sat in the driving seat of a Ford Transit van used by the gang, which was later found burnt out.

Investigators are appealing for anyone with information on that van to come forward.

Officers say they are making progress in identifying some of the gang members involved.

Armed gardaí will continue to patrol the streets over the coming days.

The number for Ballymun station is 01 666 4400. The Garda Confidential Line can be reached at 1800 666 111.

With reporting from Daragh Brophy.
