Family erect lavish tomb to slain gangster Gary Hutch

Family erect lavish tomb to slain gangster Gary Hutch

This is the tomb to murdered gangster Gary Hutch, whose assassination last year in Spain sparked the bloody Kinahan-Hutch feud.

The 34-year-old is remembered as a father, a son, a brother and an uncle by family who erected the massive black marble monolith in his memory.

Two carved boxing gloves adorn the grave of the man whose murder sparked the infamous hit at a boxing weigh-in at Dublin’s Regency Hotel. 

A sports car also sits atop the massive gravestone, while fresh flowers have been placed on either side of the grave at Glasnevin Cemetery, Dublin.

Hutch was a key member of the Kinahan Cartel until a massive falling out and accusations of touting began within the mob.

He was gunned down at the Miraflores complex in September, 2015, after being assured that he was safe to return to his Spanish base.

At his funeral in Dublin’s north inner city, Kay Hutch, Gary’s mother, said that the family didn’t want revenge as the pain she had endured in losing her son was unbearable and she would not wish it on others.

“We do not want retaliation. We don’t wish or pain on any other family. I let God be our judge,” she said. 

Parish priest at Our Lady of Lourdes Church on Sean McDermott Street, Fr Richard Ebejer, reiterated that call, saying the family had asked him to speak out against any plans to avenge the father of one’s death.

It is understood that in the months that followed his death, gangsters in the Kinahan Cartel continued to demand money from members of the Hutch family and Gary’s brother Derek ‘Del Boy’ Hutch survived two attempts on his life behind bars.

In November, perma-tanned gangster Liam Roe, aka Tango One, escaped with his life after a botched shooting attempt in the car park of the Red Cow Hotel in Dublin.

Last February, David Byrne, a key member of the Kinahan Cartel, was shot dead during a boxing weigh-in at the Regency Hotel in Dublin.

Since then there have been six murders in retaliation for the attack: Eddie Hutch, Noel ‘Kingsize’ Duggan, Martin O’Rourke, Michael Barr and Gareth Hutch. Investigations into all the murders are on-going and a number of people are before the courts.

On Saturday a 30-year-old man was arrested and was questioned in connection with the daylight murder of Gareth Hutch.

He was killed on May 24 at Cumberland Street shortly before 10am as he walked to his car. 

Gardaí in Mountjoy were quizzing the man yesterday under Section 50 of the Criminal Justice Act.
