Gardai have renewed their appeal to the public for information in relation to the murder of Thomas Farnan.

Mr Farnan was shot on April 25, 2016 at his home at 11 Kilcronan Court , Clondalkin, Dublin 22.

He was fatally injured when he answered the front door to a lone caller at approximately 11.40pm and was shot a number of times.

The offender fled the scene on foot through Kilcronan estate towards the Grand Canal.

Detective Inspector Colm O’Malley said that Mr Farnan's family are looking for answers.

"This is not a gangland murder. It was a local issue that led to the death.

"For his wife, son, mother, father and siblings it's still very raw. They have no answers a year on."

Det O'Malley said that gardaí would like to speak to anyone who has information in relation to the murder.

"We're seeking info from people who have critical information. Anyone who heard or saw the gunman prior to the murder is asked to get in touch."

Anybody with information is urged to contact Clondalkin Garda Station 0n 01 666 7600 or Crimestoppers on 1800 25 00 25.
