Late on Tuesday night a young man called James Molyneaux was murdered a couple of streets from where I grew up, in the ward that I represent for Dublin City Council.
The usual anonymous sources – in other words, the gardaí – told the media that the victim was a “senior associate” in something called “the Hutch cartel”, and that his murder was probably part of the ongoing feud with the Kinahan gang.
