Eamon "The Don" Dunne, considered Ireland's public enemy No. 1, was "shot eight times in the head as he drank in a city pub" in Dublin last Friday night as reported by Cormac Murphy for the Herald:
Dunne's bloody criminal career came to an end [Friday] night when two men burst into the crowded bar. It is understood the gunman and his accomplice ordered everyone to the floor before calmly picking out Dunne and shooting him at least eight times in the head. Between eight and 10 shots were pumped into his head and body with what is thought to have been a 9mm handgun. * * * It is understood four men pulled up outside the pub in a red 04 reg Volkswagen Passat. Two of them stayed outside while the gunman and his accomplice casually walked into the bar. The four made their escape in the waiting car. * * * Witnesses have described how the whole incident was over in a matter of seconds. One local man whose friend was in the pub at the time said his pal was "amazed at how quickly it happened." * * * The gunman wore dark clothing and had a hoodie pulled over his face.
Dunne, previously linked to 14 gangland slayings, "was the leader of Dublin's largest drug gang and took control of the gang after he ordered the murder of it's boss Martin 'Marlo' Hyland in December 2006," and "he wore a bulletproof vest as he was living in fear of reprisals" as reported by Donal Thornton for Irish Central.
