Four sent for trial in Limerick doorman murder


A total of four men appeared in court today in relation to the murder of Brian Fitzgerald.

26 year old Dessie Dundon, his 22 year old brother John Dundon and Gary Campion from Pineview Gardens, Moyross were all charged with murder at the sitting this morning. 49-year-old Anthony Kelly who was charged at an earlier date also appeared at the sitting.

Armed Gardai surrounded the courthouse(above) today as the four men including two brothers were led in to the chamber.

From the Limerick Blogger,
Dessie Dundon is currently serving a life sentence for the murder of Kieran Keane and attempted murder of Owen Treacy. Dundon was part of a double-cross operation against Keane, who had offered them €50,000 to kill a member of the Ryan family, the Keane's opposition in another feud, but Dundon and his associate, Anthony, "Noddy" McCarthy, decided to kill him instead.John Dundon, his brother, pleaded guilty in 2005 to charges of threatening to kill Owen Treacy during the Keane murder trial.

Another of the charged, Gary campion has already been charged with the murder of Frankie Ryan one Sunday in September.

Mr Fitzgerald was shot outside his home in Corbally on 29 November 2002 after returning home in the early hours of the morning from his work as a bouncer at a Limerick nightclub.

All four were sent forward for trial to the current sitting of the Central Criminal Court.James Martin Cahill, an Englishman, was jailed for life for the murder of Brian Fitzgerald last November.
