The court also heard Anthony Lambe had been abusing alcohol and drugs at the time of the murder and was in a very bad place.

The Judge was told he received some money for carrying out the murder.

Solicitor Gavin Booth says they need to be brought to justice too.

The accused was arrested in 2017 following a fresh Garda investigation and admitted to the murder.
