Gardaí make ring of steel for Gary Hutch funeral
A ring of steel is expected around Dublin's north-inner city tomorrow as gangland criminal Gary Hutch is laid to rest.
Hutch (34) was gunned down on Spain's Costa del Sol almost two weeks ago. His body was repatriated to Ireland on Friday.
Sources have revealed that armed gardaí will be deployed on the streets of the north-inner city during the funeral, in an attempt to quell any tensions in the area.
"The situation is on a knife-edge, with associates of Hutch furious that he may have been executed on the orders of his one-time boss Christy Kinahan," the source said.
Hutch will be reposed at his family home today. His funeral takes place at Our Lady of Lourdes Church, Sean McDermott Street, at 11am tomorrow.
