Only a handful of mourners have gathered in Dublin this morning for the funeral of murdered crime boss Martin 'Marlo' Hyland.
The 39-year-old, who was thought to be one of the country's biggest drug dealers, was shot dead at his niece's home in the Scribblestown estate in Finglas last Tuesday morning.
He is being buried in Glasnevin Cemetery today after 10am mass at Christ the King Church in Cabra.
A number of reporters were threatened with violence and forced out of the church before the ceremony began.
Gardaí believe Hyland was shot by his former criminal associates and that these men may be among the mourners at the funeral.
Meanwhile, the removal of the 20-year-old apprentice plumber who was shot dead along with the crime boss is also due to take place in Dublin this evening.
Anthony Campbell will be laid to rest tomorrow morning at Newlands Cross Cemetery.
