A man has been jailed for six years for conspiring with others to murder a man in Dublin as part of the Hutch-Kinahan gangland feud.

Dean Howe, with an address at Oakfield in Dublin 8 was described in court as a conduit for people further up the chain of command.

After becoming aware of a plot to murder a man in Dublin, Gardaí put a surveillance operation in place, and identified Gary Hanley as the target.

A number of arrests were made when Gardaí intercepted a van on Nov 6 2017, which they believed was being used to transport the gunman to the hit.

Luke Wilson from Cremona Road in Ballyfermot was caught in the back with a loaded gun and silencer, and has since been jailed for eleven years.

Dean Howe was jailed for six years today for acting as a “supervisor and advisor to the front line operators”.

Mr. J Tony Hunt said he knew what the plan was, and was present right up to the time he left the stage five hours before the intended murder.

He was described as a conduit, and Mr. J Hunt said he had no doubt he received and passed on instructions from those further up the chain.

After handing the sentence down, the judge complimented Gardaí for stopping yet another execution-style killing from taking place.

He also said his hands were tied by the existence of the statutory maximum penalty of ten years in prison for a conviction of this kind.
