The funeral of murdered RIRA associate Vinnie Ryan will take place on the north side of Dublin on Tuesday.

Gunned down RIRA thug Vinnie Ryan will be laid to rest in Donaghmede, North Dublin on Tuesday next.

The funeral details for the brother of fellow murder victim Alan Ryan were confirmed today.

Vinnie Ryan was sitting in his car outside his partner's car in Finglas when two men brutally shot him down.

His body will be reposed in the family home in Donaghmede next Monday evening.

The funeral mass will take place at the Church of the Holy Trinity, Donaghmede, on Tuesday morning before the burial in Fingal cemetery.

Ryan is survived by his partner, their young child, his mother, his three brothers and one sister.

The funeral of Ryan sibling Alan took place at the same church in 2012, amongst a big paramilitary exhibition.

A major security operation is expected to take place in the estate after the paramilitary display at Alan Ryan's funeral when a number of masked men fired a volley of shots over his coffin.

Vinnie Ryan was acquitted of possession of an assault rifle and a handgun at the Special Criminal Court in October 2013.

Tributes to the slain RIRA man, who was shot down in Finglas on Monday, were inscribed on walls in Dublin city following the murder.

Gardai have appealed to the public for assistance in tracing the murder vehicle which held Ryan's two killers on the day of the shooting.
