A gang boss hell-bent on revenge for his friend's murder could have been behind the kill order given to execute Keane Mulready-Woods.
The hit may have been financed by a businessman known for gun-for-hire kills as part of the vicious Irish Drogheda feud.
A source told The Sun a mob boss, who lives a lavish lifestyle, hired a hitman after Richard Carberry was gunned down outside his home in November.
The assassin is believed to be well known to cops, and is allegedly behind a number of murders, including the killing of Kenneth Finn in February 2018 and the shooting of Richard Carberry in November 2019.
Cops believe Keane may have had some involvement with both rivalling gangs, who run the backstreets of Dublin.

“He wanted revenge for Carberry murder because he was a pal of his.
“The hired man is one of the chief suspects in the Mulready-Woods case, he’s a complete and utter psychopath.”
