Being reported on RTE now.

Apparently leaving his home with his father and two children in the car when shots were fired. He hit a ditch and overturned the car.

Gardai are looking for a silver 06D Astra.

Details as to the injuries sustained by Mr. Killally, a former running mate of former Taoiseach Brian Cowen, are not yet available.

/mod/ write an op when you're off the phone. Try using a name. Look up the feedback threads on how to start ops if you're struggling. /mod/

I'd say there's lots of people out there who bought at the height of the Bertie Bubble in 2001-2007, who are suffering badly now, but who bought cos the local comb-over bejaysus inbred FFailure assured them shure isn't de bould Bertie in charge, shure it'll be grand, fill yer boots.

Unfortunately these are the same drooling four-thumbed morons that will troop out to vote FFailure yet again in 2016.

HIS KIDS WERE IN THE CAR????

If this is true, and shots were fired at the car, than if caught, the driver and shooter should be charged with four counts of attempted murder,

No excuse for shooting at the car when his kids were in it,
All agreed, but it does also suggest or give an indication at the level of frustration and huge knock on implications for others caused by the brand of cute hooredom practiced by Killallly and his ilk.

Incidentally, appreciate the level of frustration by mods at the OP as justification for consigning this thread to the Zoo, but I do think it warrants discussion, as possibly the first of many of these such cases where finally some one is driven (rightly or wrongly) to these levels of frustration and desperation to exact some measure of retribution and settlement against those they feel they have been wronged by.

When someone walks up to a discredited banker or a developer or a retired triple nixering politician in the not so distant future and lets loose with both barrels of a shotgun, it will be traceable back to having its genesis in this incident, whereby no one who was responsible for the mess we currently find ourselves in has yet to be held accountable or suffered the consequences of their intentional self serving negligence

Just start up another op on it in justice/ff/ whatever. There's no issue at all discussing it in line with what's been reported, there's no reason people wanting to talk about it should lose out because of the oper.

All done now Sync mé.

Thanks for the tips.

I was struggling with the latest phone which is smarter than its owner obviously.

The most shocking part of this OP is that the thread title appears to imply that Brian Cowen was, or still is, able to run.

Incredible stuff.

Whether the attack was politically motivated or not, owed someone money or not - there is no justification for the attack.

It is unfair if this attack on Mr. Killally was politically motivated but the Beast of Drumcondra is allowed to freely roam our streets

Seem to be a bit of a trend developing lately with FFers and the Gardai . Im sure he will help them with their enquirys to catch these nutters.
