GARDAI have vowed to continue to pursue Limerick's criminal gangs for their illegal assets.
The Criminal Assets Bureau (CAB) has maintained pressure on the feuding McCarthy-Dundon and Keane-Collopy criminal gangs in the city in recent years.
However, Chief Superintendent David Sheahan – head of the Limerick garda division – said there would be no let-up on criminals and the hunt for their illegal assets following a series of successful investigations in the city.
The culmination of a three-year probe into the Keane-Collopy gang resulted in a house in St Mary's Park being transferred into the ownership of Limerick City Council this month.
Chief Supt Sheahan said it was not the end of the investigations. "The message that I want to get out loud and clear here is that those engaged in criminal activity should be mindful that the gardai in Limerick intend to pursue their assets as a result of their criminal activity."
