The murder of drug dealer James Whelan in Dublin marks the start of what gardai fear will be a long-running and murderous feud between two factions of what was once one gang.

The intricacies of the fallout between the mob boss known as 'Mr Flashy' and his former lieutenant are all too familiar to many who have watched other gangland wars play out in the past.

Irish Independent crime correspondent Ken Foy joins Nicola Tallant to talk about the criminal mentor who groomed the young guns who now in turn run their own violent gangs, the significance of the murder of such a key player like Whelan and the fears of the reprisals to come.
