On July 19th 2015, McNamara was beaten up outside a pub in Doon, Co Limerick by some Road Tramps bikers as part of an apparent turf-war.
His leather sleeveless jacket with club patches was taken off him - the ultimate insult to a biker, the court heard.
He claimed he and his family were later threatened outside his home by three members of the Road Tramps - one of whom had a gun.
The next day, he drove up to their clubhouse where he met Andrew O’Donoghue at the gates and shot him in the head.
He claimed he was acting in self-defence, but the jury disagreed and found him guilty of murder after deliberating for two hours and 43 minutes.
He will be sentenced in October alongside his stepson Robert Cusack who admitted hiding the shotgun used to kill Mr O’Donoghue.
