A 32-year-old man has appeared in court charged with the murder of Keith Walker in Dublin last Friday week.

The father of two (36) died when he was shot several times last Friday week on the Sherwin Road in Blanchardstown in a case of mistaken identity.

Detective Sergeant Paul Tallon told the court today he charged Christopher McDonald at Blanchardstown garda station yesterday evening.

He told the court that McDonald made no reply to the charge.

Mr McDonald, with a former address of Boolavogue Road, East Wall in Dublin 3, was remanded in custody to appear at Cloverhill District Court this Friday.

The judge ordered that Mr McDonald receive medical attention and he granted free legal aid.

McDonald was arrested within 12 hours of the murder of Mr Walker. Two other men remain in garda custody.

Mr Walker was gunned down after arriving at the Shelerin Road community centre in Clonsilla for a pigeon racing meeting.
