Murder began in Spain with Gary Hutch's double cross – Gerry's nephew "The Monk" – in September 2015. This was followed by the shooting of David Byrne in a boxing box at the Regency Hotel in Dublin in February 2016.

This month three people were sentenced to life sentences for their role in the murder of Gareth Hutch's first father in May 2016.

The shooting was caught on CCTV when he went to his car outside his home in Dublin.
