Gardai are preparing a major security operation for the funeral of innocent gangland victim Antoinette Corbally-Devoy this week.

The body of Antoinette (48) was released to her family yesterday. She and innocent Clinton Shannon were shot dead by two men who opened fire outside her home on Balbutcher Drive, Ballymun, earlier this month.

Up to 20 shots were fired during the attack. The intended target was Derek 'Bottler' Devoy (37), who dropped a young child as he fled from the scene unhurt.

The brother of murdered Antoinette, Derek Devoy is said to be "devastated" at her brutal killing.

There was a discreet garda presence in the area last night as family members and close friends gathered at the home in north Dublin for the wake of Antoinette.

It is understood her funeral this week will be closely monitored.
