ORNATE floral displays made in tribute to slain gangster James Whelan feature a Lamborghini sports car, a Gucci cap and designer Rolex watches.

Whelan was shot dead in Dublin last week as part of a feud involving the notorious Finglas-based drug-dealer Mr Flashy.

A temporary marquee set up near his home featured dozens of floral tributes and photographs of the 29-year-old.

Several other tributes spell out ‘Whela’ ‘brother’ ‘son’ ‘godfather’ and another depicts a joint and a cannabis leaf.

A number of young men on scrambler motorbikes also accompanied the hearse from his home before the funerals, doing wheelies and doughnuts.

There have been fears his murder will spark more deadly violence with threats and promises of revenge were posted online in the aftermath of the killing.

The Sunday World previously reported how gang members are accusing each other of a double-cross in which Whelan was lured to his death.

It was also revealed the father-of-one's associates have already made plans that another drug dealer in his 20s will take over from him.
