The home of Stephen Lynch has become a shrine to the 32-year-old, who was deliberately run over by a car in Tallaght.

A vigil will take place in Mr Lynch's home estate tonight in his honour and to show local support for his family.

The murder has caused huge shock and sorrow in Tallaght.

The garden railings of the victim's home have been a focal point for this grief, where people have left floral tributes, candles and photographs of Stephen with his family in happier times.

The vigil in Mr Lynch's honour will take place at 9pm tonight at Glenshane Close, Tallaght.

Mr Lynch's funeral mass will be held on Friday morning.

 

Dubliner Stephen died from serious head injuries after being run over by a vehicle at Brookview Close in Tallaght at 7pm last Thursday night.

A champion amateur boxer with a reputation for violence is part of the gang whose members are the prime suspects.

Gardai believe that the victim got involved in an argument with the gang members, who were travelling in a silver Ford Focus.

 

It is thought that the car was then driven over Mr Lynch.

Gardai believe that the car may have been driven back and forth over him as well, and that he had also been kicked as he lay unconscious on the ground.
