Criminals Graham Taylor, Karl Freeman and Dean Maguire died together last July in a horror road crash when the car they were travelling in collided head-on with a lorry as they drove down the wrong side of the N7.

Nicola Tallant talks to Irish independent crime correspondent Ken Foy about the life and times of the three notorious mobsters and the plummeting burglary rates since their death.
