A sister of Gerry 'The Monk' Hutch died over the weekend following a suspected brain haemorrhage.

Tina Moore, who was aged in her 50s, collapsed in her home in Dublin's north inner city on Thursday and died in hospital on Friday night.

'The Monk' is currently on the run after a European Arrest Warrant was issued for his arrest in relation to the Regency Hotel attack, so he cannot travel back to Ireland for the funeral.

A number of people in the local community paid tribute to mother-of-three Tina yesterday.

Local councillor Anthony Flynn said: "I want to offer my heartfelt condolences to the Moore family.

"Tina was a valued member of our community who my grandmother had a special place in her heart for within Portland Square.

"Tina was a friend of my uncle Greg's and my own mother Yvonne.

"Tina was and will always be held in high esteem in Portland Place District. A tragedy on our community. May she RIP.

East Wall Bessborough Football Club released a statement yesterday saying they were deeply saddened by the passing of Tina, who had links to the club, and sent its sympathies and condolences to her family.

Many more friends and neighbours paid tribute to Tina online, saying she was "a lovely neighbour who always looked out for her elderly neighbours" and "an absolute lady".

Tina is one of several close relatives of the Monk to die since the Regency attack.

Their taxi-driver brother Eddie was shot dead at his north Dublin home in February 2016, just days after the Regency attack.
