The Indo Daily: Brandon Ledwidge – the first gangland murder of 2023

Brandon Ledwidge was due in court on drugs charges

The murder of Brandon Ledwidge in Finglas last week was remarkable in that it was the first such killing of the year.

The 23-year-old was shot dead outside his home in a brazen attack at 7pm. His funeral heard about a man who wasn't without a big fat joint in his mouth and a hammer in his pocket.

Further violence took place afterwards at a pub, sparking fears of an uptick in gangland feuding.

In today's episode of the Indo Daily, presenter Kevin Doyle is joined by Irish Independent crime correspondent Ken Foy to discuss the motive behind Brandon Ledwidge's murder and whether the relative calm in the gangland world has been shattered.
