Feud related row at courthouse yesterday

More details are emerging today about the averted street brawl which Gardai say was about to ensue outside the courthouse yesterday.

It’s now believed that an 18 year-old named Alan Kelly from Delmege Park was leaving Limerick District court yesterday lunchtime when he was ‘taunted’ by a group from a rival gang outside the building.

Shortly after, Mr. Kelly arrived back with his own group of associates. They were armed with an assortment of weapons, some of which were the obligatory golf club.

Gardai were already alerted at this point and detained the group on Nicholas Street. Three were arrested including Mr. Kelly. The others were 22 year-old Christopher McCarthy from Crecora Avenue and a 16 year old who can’t be named.

The three appeared in court yesterday evening, making it the second appearence in the same day for Mr. Kelly.Two were released on bail but Mr. Kelly was held in custody for is own safety. They will all appear again on July 11th.

Speaking yesterday a Garda said “The feud in Limerick has gone down to another generation”
