Shooting at Boxing Weigh In in Dublin

This was totally expected


YOUNG children were among dozens who were forced to flee a hotel after three gunmen burst in and opened fire.

Innocent families and tourists were in the hotel foyer as the 'Clash of the Clans' boxing weigh-in was about to take place in a nearby reception room.

The gunmen, dressed in garda-style uniforms, burst into the foyer of the hotel at approximately 2.30pm and armed with what eye witnesses say looked like AK47s, and fired a number shots, leading to dozens of people fleeing from the hotel.
One man died at the scene, while two other men are seriously injured.

The three men, all aged in their twenties or thirties, were brought to Beaumont and the Mater Hospital. The injuries of the two men are not believed to be life-threatening.

There is a large garda presence now at the scene and gardai have begun investigating the incident.
The scene is sealed off and a technical examination of the area is expected to take place.

POLICE FEAR GANGLAND RETALIATION AT DUBLIN BOXING EVENT

Two weeks ago in beautiful Costa del Sol, Spain, notorious Irish gangster Gary Hutch was murdered by a masked gunman in broad daylight outside a luxury apartment building in the seaside town of Marbella.

Hutch, 34, had just returned from a morning jog when he was ambushed by the complex pool. The gunman hit Hutch several times in the back and head before jumping into a waiting BMW, which had been stolen a few days earlier, and speeding off. Currently the authorities have no suspects in custody.

Word around the Dublin underworld, though, is that Hutch was killed by members of his own gang, the legendary Kinahan mob, an international drug- and gun-trafficking syndicate with connections to gangs throughout Europe—punishment, they say, for Hutch's screwing up drug deals and stealing from the gang.

The leader of the Kinahan mob, Christy Kinahan, reportedly believed Hutch, a noted hothead and loudmouth, had double-crossed him and stolen more than €100,000. Kinahan, who had also ordered the murders of two debt-collectors in the gang over the previous six months, was believed to be sending a message that disloyalty would not be tolerated.

Two days ago a funeral was held for Gary Hutch at Our Lady of Lourdes Church on Sean McDermott Street in Dublin. Hundreds of mourners gathered to pay tribute to the career criminal and nephew of famed former gangster Gerry "The Monk" Hutch.

During the ceremony someone read a letter that had been written by Hutch's brother, Derek "Del Boy" Hutch, who is currently serving a prison sentence for manslaughter and cash-in-transit robbery. Hutch's mother, Kay, pled with those in attendance, many of whom were criminal associates of Hutch's, not to seek revenge on her son's killer, whoever he may be.

"We don't want any retaliation," Kay Hutch said. "We don't want any family to feel the pain we are feeling." The parish priest of Our Lady of Lourdes, Father Richard Ebjeher, echoed her sentiment: "To those who are here, especially the young, I repeat the words of St Paul: 'Do not overcome evil by evil, but overcome evil by good.'"

Pleasant words and true ones, but unfortunately for Kay Hutch and Fr. Ebjeher and anyone else hoping to see an end to gangland violence in Dublin, it seems that Hutch's former underworld associates aren't interested in Biblical forbearance, not now anyway. According to one police informant, friends of Hutch's believe Kinahan had "overstepped the line," and that revenge is imminent.

"They may have bitten off more than they can chew," said the source. "His associates are not going to take this lying down, without a shadow of a doubt. They have money and have very good connections, both here and across Europe."

So, hoping for Ebjeher's best but planning for their source's worst, police in Dublin say they'll be ramping up security at a boxing event scheduled to take place at the city's National Stadium November 7 in hopes of preventing any of Hutch's friends and associates from exacting revenge on the Kinahan mob.

Their logic being that the "Second Coming" card will feature fighters from Macklin's Gym Marbella, a boxing club in Costa del Sol that members of the Kinahan mob have adopted as their own and whose fighters gang members travel all over the world to support.

Police figure if friends of Hutch hope to hit Christy Kinahan in retaliation for Hutch's murder, they'll start there, where members of the mob are sure to be.

This may all sound a bit strange to combat-sport fans: all this talk of murder and retaliation and mob hits. After all, you'd have to go back decades to find a time when organized crime any kind of serious connection to American boxing, while the demise of the Yakuza-supported Pride Fight Championships promotion in 2007 seems to have brought an end to MMA's brief mob-connected era.

But in Ireland (and Costa del Sol, where Irish gangsters have set up a satellite criminal community) the loyalty between boxing gyms and gangs runs deep. So deep, in fact, that boxers, just by virtue of where they train, are at risk of getting caught up in the violence of Ireland's criminal underworld. Not boxing violence—real violence.

Consider this for a twisted web and a parable in avoiding affiliation with society's darker elements: In August 2014 at a villa in Marbella just minutes from the spot where Gary Hutch was murdered last month, Irish boxer Jamie Moore was shot twice during a mob attack at a villa owned by Daniel Kinahan, son of Christy Kinahan and a good friend of Hutch's.

Moore, who is not a criminal, was in town just to train at Macklin's Gym Marbella with Matthew Macklin, and was attending a party at Kinahan's. Well, it soon came out that Hutch, who was also at the party and who, like Daniel Kinahan, trained at Macklin's gym, was the intended target of the shooting and that Moore was just an innocent bystander or a victim of mistaken identity.

Hutch escaped but it wasn't clear if it had been Christy Kinahan who had called in the hit or if Russian mobsters (who have a heavy presence in Costa del Sol and who Hutch had apparently mouthed off to during a drug deal gone wrong not long before) were gunning for him.

Regardless, Hutch retreated underground soon after, only popping up occasionally in Amsterdam (where he was nearly kidnapped) and Dublin. But the die had been cast—for him, for Moore (who, a year later, is still recovering), and perhaps for the fighters at Macklin's Gym Marbella and every boxer and boxing fan appearing at next month's event. The reach of the criminal life extends far and it extends wide, marring all it touches.

So the question now is: Will Gary Hutch's ghost haunt Dublin's "Second Coming"?

Something went wrong, try refreshing the page...

Re: Shooting at Boxing Weigh In in Dublin

I wasn't aware Dublin had hardcore gangsters, I shall have to have a closer look at the Kinahan mob, it may be interesting.

It's bad. Especially since you have ex paramilitaries involved (not with the kinahans). There was a thread in the death section when alan ryan (real ira) was killed by one gang. Of the 8 involved I think 7 are dead. Ex inla have also been involved. It's kind of scary when drug dealers are chucking grenades at each other!!

Despite the fact that the mgm gym has some top fighters I know a good few people involved in boxing that have flat out said NO when given the opertunity to go over there.

One of the boxers in the main events brother and father have both been killed over this crap

Re: Shooting at Boxing Weigh In in Dublin

You don't wanna know how many criminals attending (kick) boxing/ MMA events and how much money is involved. This ruins the sport.

For a long time, the Law enforcement agencies with warrents, etc, would wait for an event to plan an arrest.....but you know....the crimminals got wise to that. ....but they still show up and hope things go their way.
