Six people have been killed since last September in the ongoing Hutch-Kinahan feud in Dublin.
Furthermore, the capital has seen a sudden increase in crime with a total of seven fatal attacks in the past eleven weeks, some gangland-related, others not.
Locals now describe 'an air of fear' in the north inner city, following two separate shootings last night. The first shooting, which took the life of Michael Barr (34) at a north inner city pub is believed to be connected to the Hutch-Kinahan feud.
He was a dissident republican who may have been supplying weapons to the Hutch mob, according to sources.
It is also understood he was an associate of one of the shooters at the Regency Hotel in February, who has been nicknamed ‘Flat Cap’.
Barr, who was originally from Tyrone, had been living on Dublin’s northside and was a major target for the Special Detective Unit.
