British Reinforcements for Limerick Gang: Report

The Examiner reports today that a Limerick based gang who is involved in the tit for tat shooting incidents in the city during the last week is receiving reinforcements from England.

From the Examiner,

It is believed that relatives of one feuding family have traveled from their homes in Birmingham in recent days in response to a plea for reinforcements from relatives in Moyross. The occupants of three houses in Hyde Villas and Clarina Avenue left their homes yesterday to take refuge elsewhere in the city after recent attacks.

In the latest incidents, Gardai say they received reports of shots fired at three different locations in the city hotspots on Wednesday night .Two of the reports emanated from John Carew Park and the other was in St. Mary’s Park.

Gardai responded to all three calls but say no damage or shell casings were found and that there was no evidence of any shootings at those scenes but did say that they most likely did happen.
