Car used in murder may provide vital clues

Tom Brady Security Editor

Gardai are investigating a number of reported sightings of the stolen car used by the killers of Continuity IRA member Liam Kenny in the days prior to his murder.

The car, a 10-D registered silver Nissan Qashqai, was stolen in Dublin during a house burglary less than a week earlier.

The killers made their getaway in the car from Mr Kenny's home at Shancastle Avenue in Clondalkin shortly after 4am on Thursday.

It was later found burnt out at Steeples estate, off St Laurence's Road, in Chapelizod.

Gardai are trying to establish if the murder is linked to a row between a Blanchardstown-based associate of Mr Kenny and members of the Real IRA over the control of the "doors" at pubs and nightclubs in parts of west Dublin.

They have also been examining the possibility that the murder is connected to bitter divisions within the Continuity IRA, which have resulted in a rift in the organisation as well as clashes between it and local drug dealers in Clondalkin.
