HITMAN-in-drag Christopher McDonald has been found guilty of the murder of a man who he shot dead outside a Dublin pigeon club.

McDonald (34) had the verdict handed down by a jury at the Central Criminal Court today.

He shot 36-year-old Keith Walker 18 times with a sub-machine gun in the car park at Blanchardstown Racing Pigeon Club in Clonsilla on June 12, 2015.

The defendant, from the East Wall area of the north inner city, had pleaded not guilty to the murder of Mr Walker.
