A MAN is due before court today charged in connection with the murder of Real IRA boss Alan Ryan.

The suspect, in his 30s, was arrested in Dublin last night and detained in Coolock Garda station.

He is due before the District Court this morning, a Garda statement said.

Ryan, leader of a Real IRA faction in north Dublin, was shot dead on September 3 while walking with an associate along Grange Lodge Avenue, Clongriffin.

The 32-year-old's gang was involved in extortion and intimidation of drug dealers and racketeering against pub and club owners.
