It was a brutal gangland murder that made headlines across the world. Now, two years on from the murder of 17-year-old Keane Mulready Woods, it seems an uneasy peace has descended on Drogheda.

With two men facing trial this year for the teenager's murder, a third man due to be sentenced in relation to the disposal of his body and a number of key players in the feuding gangs behind bars or on the run, a lot has changed for the rival mobs.

Nicola Tallant talks with Irish Independent Crime Correspondent Ken Foy, who says that despite the crackdown on organised crime and the success in breaking up two powerful gangs in the commuter town, gardai remain on high alert for a return to violence.
