Notorious Dublin gangster on trial on a firearms charge in connection...
One of the capital’s most notorious gangsters will be tried tomorrow on January 17th on gun charges related to an attempted double homicide in the Swords area.

It can also be determined that a runaway buddy of the defendant, Robert ‘Roo’ Redmond, 32, is likely to be arrested in jail on the same charges.

In January of that year, Redmond and his right-wing husband were arrested before being released without charge for a double shooting in north Dublin in which a victim sustained catastrophic injuries.

The duo were arrested near a burning Black 151 D reg Citroen C4 car on Greenwood Avenue in Clonshaugh, about eight miles from the double shooting at St. Margaret’s on the afternoon of January 17th.

However, Redmond has been unlucky since then, after being arrested on a full-scale intimidation investigation in Northern Ireland and facing the full force of the Criminal Assets Bureau in the High Court.

In August, a Belfast court was charged with death threats after a family’s home was shot.

A court heard that gun attacks had been fired at a Tyrone house tied to a $ 250,000 drug debt owed to criminals in the capital.

Police claimed the Coalisland home had been attacked twice with telephone warnings in order to “harm” a family living there if the money was not paid.

Details emerged when Redmond, who is centrally linked to gangland feuds in Dublin, appeared in Belfast Magistrates’ Court, charged with death threats between February 1 and July 2, 2019.

Redmond, of Woodview Close in the Donaghmede area, was arrested at a hotel Tuesday after apparently traveling north for one night.

A detective said the case was related to separate gun attacks on Coalisland property in March and July last year.

In the first incident, several shots were fired through the windows of the house.

Police believe the attack was carried out because a family member living there was threatened by Dublin criminals.

The alleged victim claims he developed a friendship with Redmond after they met in Lanzarote.

However, according to the detective, their relationship deteriorated when Redmond blamed him for a $ 250,000 drug debt.

Death threats were allegedly made in WhatsApp messages, with one telling the man that he had two weeks to pay and “tick tock, tick tock” unsubscribed.

It was alleged that another message warned, “I am going to harm your family.”

After the house was shot a second time, the man allegedly received further telephone communications informing him that he would get “five or six in the face.”

Defense attorney Hamill Clawson insisted that Redmond will only be charged with death threats, which are denied.

“He was released unconditionally in connection with the alleged shooting that took place a year ago at the applicant’s home address,” the lawyer said.

When asked why his client was in the north this week, Mr Clawson stated, “There is still a lockdown in the south, he came to Belfast for an evening.”

Redmond was denied bail, but has been on it ever since. However, following his arrest this weekend, he is being held on pre-trial detention in the Dublin District Court on these separate charges.

The Herald previously revealed how deeply involved ‘Roo’ is in the deadly Coolock feud when he lost € 136,000 in assets following a High Court ruling.

The convicted drug dealer survived an attempted hit and was arrested twice for possession of firearms in connection with the feud in which five people were killed.

He was released both times without charge, but is said to have come under increasing pressure in recent days – because his 32-year-old right-wing husband is now in custody on separate firearms charges.

Redmond has been the subject of several investigations by specialized Garda units, including the Drugs and Organized Crime Bureau (DOCB).

He was also closely monitored by the Criminal Assets Bureau (CAB), which made two significant seizures of him in August 2018 and January 2019.

In the High Court last July, Justice Alex Owens gave the CAB permission to sell Redmond’s seized assets and put the proceeds in the state coffers.

The assets included a 151 Audi A6, high-quality watches and handbags, designer clothing and more than 36,000 euros in cash. The total value of the property is estimated at € 136,000.

Redmond was absent in court to learn that the state will seize the items, including a diamond-studded Audemars Piguet watch valued at over € 22,000, a Rolex watch valued at over € 16,000, and a Rolex Oyster Perpetual – Ladies watch valued at over 22 euros 21,000.

Designer goods worth 10,000 euros were also confiscated.

Redmond, who has 77 criminal convictions, including four for drug possession, was sentenced to five years in prison in the Dublin Circuit Criminal Court in 2013 for pleading guilty to drugs for sale or delivery in Burnell Square, Northern Cross, Malahide Road own September 29, 2010.
