THE father of the four Dundon criminal brothers has returned to Limerick as his son Ger Dundon was released from prison.

Kenneth Dundon is back living in his native city, where gardai remain on red alert for Ger Dundon, who was released from Wheatfield prison on Saturday evening.

It is expected that Ger -- Kenneth's youngest son -- will also return to Limerick.

Kenneth (57) has moved back following a spell abroad. He attended the trial of another son, John, last year at the Special Criminal Court for the murder of Shane Geoghegan in 2008.


Kenneth Dundon is notorious having earned his first conviction for assault in Limerick in 1974.

He served a six-year sentence in London for stabbing Christopher Jacobs (50) to death more than 10 years ago. Jacobs had been having an affair with Kenneth's wife, Anne McCarthy, who has since died.

Ger Dundon was granted early release with remission after he was imprisoned for five years for violent disorder as part of an extortion campaign against a Limerick nightclub promoter.

Last night, gardai remained on the alert to his whereabouts.

The gang's influence in the Limerick area of Ballinacurra-Weston has been dismantled by gardai.

"It can never return to what it was like here. We will be keeping well on top of them," a source said.
