The 39-year-old was shot dead in a gangland-style attack in the capital last week.

His funeral took place as Our Lady of Good Council in his native Drimnagh.

He was murdered last Sunday as he was on his way to visit his sister, Sharon.

His beige-coloured Audi A4 car was hemmed in at Cooley Road, in Drimnagh, by two other vehicles – a silver Nissan Qashqai and a silver saloon.

At least three men were involved in the attack at around 3pm.

Six shots were fired initially from the handgun into the Audi and Zambra, who was on his own in the car, climbed into the front passenger seat and stumbled out of the vehicle. Shots hit the windscreen, and more blasted out the driver's window.

He ran along the pavement and into the garden of a house three doors away.

He then collapsed in the garden and the gunman fired two or three further shots into his face.
