Gardai have sealed off a caravan park after a man was shot dead in County Louth this afternoon.
The victim, in his thirties, is believed to be a close associate of one of the family’s involved in the bitter Drogheda feud.
He was working on the decking of a mobile home at the front of the Aisling Caravan Park in Clogherhead.
At approximately 2:50pm, shots were fired from a car, which then fled the scene at high speed.
The man was struck by a bullet and died a short time later.
Gardai have not yet linked this afternoon’s shooting to the violent Drogheda feud.
If it is, it’ll be the feud’s first fatality.
