GARDAÍ HAVE IDENTIFIED the weapon used to kill Corkman Darren Falsey, who was found dead at his home last August.

Falsey, 36, was shot several times at the house where he lived with his partner and child in Carrigaline, Co Cork.

Superintendent Charlie Barry last night confirmed that gardaí investigating the murder discovered a handgun in woods in north Cork, and subsequent ballistics tests confirmed that it was the firearm used to kill Falsey, according to the Irish Examiner.

More than €30,000 in cash was reportedly discovered at a premises rented by Falsey and gardaí are also investigating whether the money was related to his death.

Gardaí are investigating the possibility that Falsey, a suspected drug dealer, was the victim of a gangland hitman.
