Frankie Ryan murder – Teen released

The 18 year old arrested after the killing of Frankie Ryan has been released today. The young man was in the passenger seat of the car when the driver, Mr. Ryan was shot dead by a gunman on a motorbike.

He fled from the scene fearing for his life but was arrested the next day by Gardai who believed he was “withholding information”.

A report suggests that this particular teen has only recently become involved with criminal elements in the feud and was arrested several weeks ago following a brawl at Limerick District Court.

Mr. Ryan’s removal will take place tonight from Cross’s funeral home. A high Garda presence is expected.
