The van was found burnt out in the Charlemont Estate shortly after the incident.

The men are understood to have then escaped on foot through St Vincent's GAA club towards Killester.

However the trial on the men goes cold after that.

Gardai arrived at the hotel minutes later - a witness described the scene as "absolute pandemonium".
