THIS is Thomas ‘Tossy’ Fox, who was this week sent forward for trial to the Special Criminal Court for the murder of Gareth Hutch.

Fox (29), who has an address at Rutland Court, in north inner-city Dublin, is charged with the murder of Hutch, who was shot dead outside Avondale House flats on North Cumberland Street in Dublin last May as part of the Kinahan-Hutch feud.

Fox, who is pleading not guilty, was previously charged with possession of a firearm on the day before the killing, but that charge has been struck out.

This week it emerged Fox will be tried in the non-jury Special Criminal Court.

Other pictures show him with his pal Johnny Keogh, who Gardaí also want to speak to in relation to his whereabouts on the day Hutch was shot dead.

Keogh was sentenced to eight years imprisonment by the Special Criminal Court after being caught in an INLA pipe-bomb factory a number of years ago.

He has not been seen since the murder of Hutch, which took place around the corner from Keogh’s home, and is believed to have travelled abroad.

Keogh was associated with the New INLA group and was regularly spotted in the company of Belfast-man Gerard Mackin, who is currently before the Special Criminal Courts charged with an crucifixion attack on a Limerick traveller.

The pair were also regularly spotted with a Ballymun criminal who was arrested over the murder of Gareth Hutch and as part of the investigation into the murder of former New IRA member Vinnie Ryan, but in both cases was  released without charge.

Fox and Keogh are also pals with MMA fighter Eamon Cumberton, who is currently before the Special Criminal Court charged over the murder of New IRA man Michael Barr. He was shot dead in the Sunset House pub in Summerhill last year.

Locals claimed Keogh was spotted in the pub on the night of Barr’s murder.

Gareth Chubb and Fox are pals

Fox is also a pal of Gareth Chubb, who was arrested in Amsterdam last Sunday in connection with an attempted gun attack in the Dutch city.

Chubb (29), from Drimnagh, has made numerous visits to Amsterdam in recent years, bringing pals with him as he flashes cash in cafes, pubs and nightclubs.

Gardaí suspect he has also been organising drug shipments with international crime gangs while there.

Chubb was arrested on Sunday after a Dutch citizen, originally from Nigeria, ran to cops saying he had pulled a gun on him at a café in Rembrandt Square.

Officers moved in on Chubb, who was with another Irish associate from Inchicore, as well as two men from London and Liverpool.

Dutch police found a Glock handgun, a Walther PPK, another pistol and a silencer when they searched the area. 

Chubb had been staying at flat which was previous used by other Kinahan Cartel member when they are doing business in the city.

The Sunday World previously revealed how Chubb took a group of his pals to Prague, where they carried out weapons training.
