Witness appeal

Gardaí investigating the murder of Edward Nugent have appealed for information on the movements of a car found burnt-out a short time after the killing.

Mr Nugent was shot dead at his home on Harty Avenue in Walkinstown, Dublin, on the evening of February 15.

Gardaí are trying to trace the movements of a silver Honda Civic between 6.30pm and 9.30pm that evening. It had a partial registration 04 D and was a Japanese import with distinctive alloy wheels and 'L' plates. The car was stolen from the Kilmainham area earlier that day. It was found burnt-out at the junction of Esposito Road and John McCormack Avenue in Walkinstown at around 9.30pm.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Crumlin Garda Station on 01 6666200 or the Garda Confidential Line 1800 666111.
