A GARDA investigation into the shooting of criminal Eamon Dunne in a Dublin pub in April is "live and ongoing", an inquest has heard.

Dunne (34), of Dunsoughly Drive, Finglas, was shot several times in the Fassaugh House pub, Cabra, north Dublin, on April 23. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

A post-mortem found he had died from multiple gunshot wounds to the head and body.

Detective Inspector Francis Sweeney, of Fitzgibbon Street garda station, said the investigation into Mr Dunne's death was "very much ongoing".

He applied for a six-month adjournment of an inquest into Dunne's death at the Dublin City Coroner's Court under Section 25.1 of the Coroner's Act 1962, which Coroner Brian Farrell granted.

"I have to adjourn until the gardai have exhausted their investigation or until a file is sent to the DPP," the coroner said before adjourning the inquest to a date in June 2011.
