THE little sister of the infamous Dundon brothers has kept up appearances despite being on the run since 2011.

Annabel Dundon fled Ireland after she was charged with threatening to kill April Collins, the ex-girlfriend of her brother Ger.

A bench warrant was issued for her arrest and it was later reported that a European Arrest Warrant had also been sought by the authorities.

Three of her brothers Wayne, John, and Dessie are serving life sentences for murders carried out during Limerick’s brutal underworld gang war

She since underwent an image transformation, happily posting glamorous selfies on social media from the UK.

The Sunday World previously revealed how it was claimed Annabel narrowly escaped being arrested by UK police.

Police arrived at the flat where they were living in Moston, Manchester, but failed to find her hiding under a built-in kids’ bed.

She has since been living between Manchester and London, but is also thought to have made occasional trips back to Ireland.

At the height of their power the Dundon brothers were one of the most fearsome criminal gangs in Limerick.

They have since been effectively broken up after a series of successful investigations and prosecutions.

Only Ger Dundon remains free but has struggled to live up to the clan’s old status as top dogs in the city.

Another brother Kenneth Junior, who has no involvement in crime, remains close to his sister,  keeping a low-profile in England.

Annabel became the trigger for one of the saddest sagas in the feud when a barman was shot in the leg for refusing to serve her in a pub when she was just 14 years old.

It sparked a war of intimidation against businessman Steve Collins after Wayne was jailed for ten years for making threats.

Collins’ son Roy was later shot dead on the orders of Dundon who was convicted after a trial in which April Collins was a key prosecution witness

Wayne had been doing a six year sentence for threatening to kill two brothers of April Collins while awaiting the murder trial John was found guilty of the 2008 murder of innocent rugby player Shane Geoghegan and sentenced to life at the non-jury Special Criminal Court.

Dessie Dundon is serving a life sentence for the 2003 murder of Kieran Keane.

A key enforcer for the gang, Nathan Killeen is also serving life for the murder of Roy Collins.
