A man who fired a sawn-off shot gun at a Nigerian man he was hired to klll for a IR£15,000 fee has been given 100 hours community service by Dublin Circuit Criminal Court.

John Byrne (aged 21) with a previous address at O’Hogan Road, Ballyfermot, had agreed to carry out the shooting after another man offered him the £15,000 fee to kill Mr Ben Streetly.

A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
