A man has been shot dead at the old Mill housing estate in Rathoath in Co Meath, in an apparent gangland style attack.

The man who was in his 50's was in a car when he was shot just before 8pm tonight.

There are reports that the victim was a well known criminal who had been living in Ratoath.

It's not yet known if the shooting has any connection to the ongoing gangland feud which claimed two lives in Dublin earlier this year.

No further details at this point and further updates will follow.
