Another fine mess - and right in the teeth of a General Election
There was one remarkable absence at the Regency Hotel last Friday afternoon when up to six murderers burst in brandishing AK-47s.
There was not a single garda present. Just the previous weekend, our sister paper, the 'Herald', had reported that some senior figures from the criminal world would be involved in this boxing event. Journalists and photographers from two of INM's news organisations were present and their photographs and video footage now have the potential to help track these brutal killers, who have broken new ground in their display of effrontery.
Yesterday on RTÉ radio, Seán O'Rourke asked Justice Minister Frances Fitzgerald why no garda was present.
