Paul Williams: Escalation of frightening gang war strikes fear in community

The latest gangland murder in Dublin last night appears to be connected to the feud between the Kinahan and Hutch mobs.
Michael Barr - a senior member of the IRA - was blasted to death as he worked in the Sunset House Pub on Summerhill Parade, which is a short walk from the last needless killing of innocent father-of-three Martin O'Rourke (24) just a week ago.
While it is probably too early to make a definitive judgment on what exactly happened last night, all the indicators at the time of writing are that this is connected to the war between two of Ireland's biggest mobs.
