Businessman Steve Collins, whose son Roy was murdered by the notorious McCarthy-Dundon gang, was left sickened when he heard their name this week.

The gang has been linked to the killing of serial hitman Robbie Lawlor - and Mr Collins fears the incident may mark its return to serious crime.

In an exclusive interview, Mr Collins told the Irish Independent: "It brings it all back when we hear that name mentioned, we thought the name Dundon had been buried for good and that they were gone."
