Large garda presence for funeral of gangland victim Michael Keogh
The funeral for gangland hit victim Michael Keogh was held today in St. Francis Xavier Church, Gardiner St, Dublin.
Officers from the Armed Support Unit and Garda Dog Unit were on standby through the service.
Reports indicate that the coffin was carried into the church by female friends and relatives amid fears that male pallbearers would become targets.
Keogh’s hearbroken sons paid tribute to their father, saying: “Dad, you were my superman and always did your best for us no matter what.”
Michael Keogh was gunned down in the early hours of Monday June 1st in the underground car park of the Sheridan Court flat complex on Dublin's Dorset Street where he lived.
The shooting is the latest killing linked to the deadly Kinahan/Hutch feud which has now claimed 12 lives.
It is believed his killers targeted Keogh as he was on his way to work.
Keogh’s on the run brother Jonathan was picked up by police in the UK last week and is currently being held on foot of an extradition warrant.
