Outlaw Executed, former Provisional IRA/ and Sticky fund raiser executed

A 65-year-old convicted drug dealer has been shot dead in Dublin. Eamon Kelly was shot several times on Furry Park Road in Killester shortly after 4pm. Eamon Kelly worked closely with the Provisional IRA and Sinn Fein in the 1980s in Dublin and at that time was a significant player for the PIRA in terms of fund-raising activity.
He was taken to Beaumont Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.
He served a lengthy sentence in the 1990s for the possession of a large quantity of cocaine.
GardaĆ­ arrived at the scene shortly after the shooting and chased a car with two men inside.
The car was later abandoned on the Stiles Road in Clontarf and one man, aged in his 30s, was arrested. He is being held at Clontarf Garda Station.
The two scenes have been sealed off.
The dead man is suspected of being involved in the killing of Alan Ryan, 32, on Grange Lodge Avenue in Clongriffin in September.
Ryan, who was from Grange Abbey Drive in Donaghmede, had served jail terms for IRA activities and gun possession.
MEET the veteran cocaine trafficker who has been acting as a mentor to slain crimelord Eamon 'The Don' Dunne.
Eamon Kelly (61), from Furry Park Road in Dublin, had regularly been meeting up with mobster Dunne over the last two years.
Sources have revealed pair had held a number of "summits" in parks and pubs across the city over the last few months.
Both criminals shared an interest in armed robberies and the drugs trade.
Just like his pal Dunne, Kelly was once a leading member of a major drug trafficking operation operating on Dublin's northside.
In May 1993, he became one of the first people in Ireland to be jailed for smuggling a major shipment of cocaine into the country.
The former armed robber was sentenced to 14 years in prison after he was caught with 997.3 grams of cocaine worth an estimated €500,000, following a garda surveillance operation.
Last night, a senior source claimed Kelly was still a well-respected figure in Dublin's underworld.
A senior source said: "Kelly regularly met up with Dunne. He would have acted as a mentor to him.
"Kelly is getting on but he would know everyone on the northside of the city.
"Last month, there was a dispute in the north inner-city between the Real IRA and the Continuity IRA over protection money and he was called in to solve it.
"That's not to say he is some sort of peacemaker, but he is a senior figure and would be respected."

Dad-of-nine Kelly cut his teeth as a robber working with the Official IRA in the 1980s. Despite never swearing an oath to the paramilitary group, Kelly worked with the organisation's shadowy Group B unit.
The group specialised in armed robberies of cash and drink deliveries, and was behind some of the biggest bank heists of the decade. Kelly and his associates took a cut of the profits.
In 1988, Kelly was jailed for three years for an assault on a member of the Worker's Party outside a club near the party's headquarters in Gardiner Place, Dublin.
The jury acquitted him of two more serious charges of maliciously wounding Mr Pat Quearney and causing him grievous bodily harm.
Two years earlier, Kelly had been convicted of both these charges and sentenced to 10 years in prison but this was overturned on appeal.
During the trial, a detective sergeant told the court that in the seven years he had known Kelly, he had been associating with hardened and dangerous Dublin criminals.
Kelly also has convictions for offences including shop- breaking, house-breaking and breach of the peace.
Gardai believe Kelly moved into the drug trade in the early 90s where he helped organise cannabis shipments into the country.
During his 1993 trial, the court heard that Kelly and two other men put up the money for the drugs through a contact in the US.
The cocaine was carried by Elisabeth Yamanoha (40), a native of Cuba with an address in Miami, into Dublin airport. Despite his advancing years, Kelly has maintained contact with a number of figures in the criminal underworld.
Last night, a senior source said an associate of Kelly's was a leading member of slain thug Dunne's gang.
A source said: "Kelly's associate would have been very close to Eamon Dunne, he would have been one of his most trusted people.
"He is due to face serious charges later this year."
