Dundon Down

With the conviction last week in the Special Criminal Court in Dublin of John Dundon, hope has arisen in Limerick that a corner has been turned in the city's long struggle against gang related violence. Gardai have spoken of the force's capacity to deal with serious crime.

Dundon was found guilty of murdering rugby player Shane Geoghegan in a case of mistaken identity.

Violence in Limerick has been to the fore in recent years with incidents like the Moyross incendiary attack on young children in a family car causing much public outrage.

The city has a history of poverty which has fueled much of the city's crime and drugs epidemic.
