Special Correspondent with INM, Williams charts the latest developments in the feud between two Dublin gangs headed up by the 'godfathers of Irish crime' Christy Kinahan and Gerry 'The Monk' Hutch.

Williams unearths the history behind the feud, the rapid growth of the Spanish based 'Kinahan cartel', and the events leading up to the recent gangland killings of David Byrne and Eddie Hutch Senior within four days of each other in the capital.

He also interviews Detective Chief Superintendent Michael O'Sullivan, head of the new Drugs & Organised Crime Bureau and asks whether or not the police force is equipped to deal with Irish criminals who have become "more daring, more violent and more reckless".

The feud has put crime at the centre of the 2016 election campaign as the electorate prepare to cast their votes for their preference on who should form the next Irish Government.

The one off special, Paul Williams: Gangsters at War, airs Monday TV3, 9pm.
