The mother of murdered drug dealer Zach Parker has paid tribute to her son on the third anniversary of his death.

The 23-year-old was shot dead as he drove from a gym in Swords, Co. Dublin on January 17th 2019.

Zach, who was involved in drugs trade in Dublin, was an up-and-coming drug dealer on the city’s northside and was an associate of a gang led by the notorious Finglas criminal known as ‘Mr Flashy.’

It is believed that Parker's own mob may have been responsible for the killing over a €50,000 drugs debt.

Now, his mum Siobhan has paid tribute to her son on his third anniversary.

She took to social media to share a collage of photos of Zach and his beloved pup, as well as a candle that reads: “A piece of my heart lies in heaven with you Zach.”

Siobhan’s friends showed their support for their bereaved pal in the comments section.

One commenter wrote: “Beautiful kind caring lad, always in my thoughts and prayers, thinking of you Siobhan, love you lots.”

Another said: “Sending love️. So sad a lovely young man.”

While others wrote: “The best there ever was” and “Thinking of you Siobhan.”

No one has yet been convicted of Zach’s murder as gardaí investigations continue.
