Inquest into murder of Dublin crime boss begins

The inquest into the murder of crime boss Eamon Dunne has opened at Dublin Coroner's Court.

Dunne was shot dead while attending a birthday party in Cabra four years ago.

Two masked men entered the Fassaugh House Pub in Cabra On April 23, 2010 and singled out Eamon Dunne.

Several shots were fired and the 34-year-old died at the scene.

Dunne was on bail at the time after being charged in connection with a plot to steal €1m from a transit van outside a Tesco in Kildare.

The investigation into his death remains open but his inquest is being heard before the Coroner's Court today.

It is due to hear from a number of witnesses including people who were at the birthday party on the night he was gunned down.
