Female assassin, Rose Lynch has admitted membership of the IRA, telling the Special Criminal Court, "I am guilty, but I'm very proud of that."
The 50 year-old from Oakleigh Wood in Limerick is being sentenced for the murder of David Darcy in Ballyfermot two years ago.
The Court has been told Lynch and a male accomplice 'staked out' the victim's home, before opening fire with a revolver and a shotgun.
Lynch told Gardaí she carried out the killing because she believed Mr Darcy was responsible for the death of somebody else.
Gardaí say the father-of-two was a 'wholly' innocent and unfortunate victim.
