Four men charged with conspiracy to murder a Dublin man have been further remanded in custody.

Alan Wilson, Luke Wilson, Liam Brannigan and Joseph Kelly are accused of a plot to murder Gary Hanley from Dublin’s north inner city.

They were arrested by gardai attached to the Drugs and Organised Crime Bureau on the evening of Nov. 6 in the city-centre’s north-side.

They were initially remanded in custody following a court hearing on Nov. 13 last.

Alan Wilson, 38, from New Street Gardens, Dublin 8 and Liam Brannigan, 37, from Bride Street, Dublin 8 are charged with conspiracy to murder Gary Hanley at a location within the State between Sept. 15 and Nov. 6 last.

Co-defendants Joseph Kelly, 35, from Kilworth Road, Drimnagh, Dublin 12 and Luke Wilson, 23, from Cremona Road in Ballyfermot, Dublin 10 are also accused of conspiracy to murder Mr Hanley along with two other firearms charges for unlawful possession of Beretta handgun and 15 rounds of ammunition with intent to endanger life at Philipsburgh Avenue, Fairview, Dublin 3 on Nov. 6 last, the date of their arrest.

The district court cannot grant bail in murder conspiracy cases.

They were remanded in custody by request of gardai and faced their fifth hearing today when they appeared at Cloverhill District Court.

They were further remanded in custody by Judge Victor Blake; Luke Wilson and Joseph Kelly’s case resumes in two weeks while the co-defendants’ cases were adjourned for four weeks.

They have not yet indicated how they will plead to the charges.
