She also testified in the case that led to John Dundon’s conviction for the murder of Garryowen rugby player Shane Geoghegan.Wayne Dundon is currently on remand for the murder of businessman Roy Collins.April Collins left Ger Dundon and formed a relationship with gang rapist Thomas O’Neill, but it ended when he was jailed for a mugging.Another brother, Dessie, is serving a life sentence for the murder of Limerick gang boss Kieran Keane and his sister Annabel is on the run from gardaí in the UK for allegedly threatening to kill April Collins in 2011.While in prison, the McCarthy/Dundon gang was involved in an internal dispute which resulted in the Collins family, including April’s father and brother, splitting from the faction.Ger Dundon was hospitalised after being involved in a mass brawl and on another occasion after convicted killer and rapist Ian Horgan attacked him for threatening Thomas O’Neill’s sister, with whom he is involved in a relationship.Through what Chief Superintendent Dave Sheahan described as “targeted up front policing”, Limerick Gardaí have increased their control of the city streets.Last September, Ger Dundon failed in his bid to appeal against the severity of the sentence handed down by the Special Criminal Court.During his appeal hearing, lawyers argued that the 27 year-old who has 99 previous court convictions, knows that “there is no future for him in Limerick”.center_img TAGSApril CollinsfeaturedGerard DundonJohn DundonMusic LimerickShane GeogheganWayne Dundon Print RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR NewsCrime & CourtDundon set to walk freeBy admin – January 16, 2014 2270 Facebook WhatsApp Emma Langford shortlisted for RTE Folk Award and playing a LIVE SHOW!!! this Saturday #HearThis: New music and video from Limerick rapper Strange Boylast_img read more

Real Madrid hold Barcelona to Copa del Rey draw

first_imgUnder-pressure Jose Mourinho saw his Real Madrid side come from behind to draw the first leg of their Copa del Rey semi-final with rivals Barcelona.Barca took the lead after a goalless first half at the Bernabeu when Lionel Messi played in Cesc Fabregas, who calmly fired past debutant Diego Lopez.Cristiano Ronaldo then sent a stooping header just wide as the hosts pushed for an equaliser.The reply finally came when the impressive Raphael Varane headed home.It was the visitors who had come closest to opening the scoring in the first half when Xavi’s free-kick hit the bar after 20 minutes.He had a second chance after a poor backpass by Ricardo Carvalho, but 19-year-old defender Varane rescued his veteran partner by clearing off the line. The league leaders deservedly went in front, however, when Fabregas fired home after 50 minutes.Only a brilliant Gerard Pique tackle denied Ronaldo a leveller, but the goal the hosts sought came with nine minutes remaining through former Lens defender Varane.The second leg is at the Nou Camp on 27 February.The other semi-final will be contested between Atletico Madrid and Sevilla.last_img read more
