Andrew Guerrine was murdered and dumped by Stephen Tynan and Raymond Fitzgerald

Two men have been jailed for life for murdering a drug dealer in May 2015.

Andrew Guerrine was stabbed 20 times and dumped on the side of a road in Rathcoole, south county Dublin.

Stephen Tynan of Deerpark Lodge, Tallaght and Raymond Fitzgerald of Knockmore Grove, Tallaght were convicted of murder last month following a five-week trial, during which the victim’s family watched them laughing and joking in the dock at times.

The men's attitude was something which showed a lack of respect and remorse, according to a victim impact statement read out in court today.

His sister Edel said he was no angel but described him as a “loving father” to his daughter and a gentle giant.

She said the family is now in an “absolute hell” and she can't believe her brother was killed by two men who just didn't want to pay for some tablets.
