The funeral of gangland shooting victim Gareth Hutch will take place in Dublin tomorrow.

The nephew of Gerry "The Monk" Hutch was shot dead outside his home at Avondale House on North Cumberland Street in the north inner city last week.

His funeral takes place in the Holy Family Church on Aughrim Street in Dublin 7 tomorrow morning at 11.30.

There will be a garda presence at the funeral and tight security will be in place.

Two people have been charged in connection with the killing.

Thomas Fox of Rutland Court in Dublin 1 has been charged with the unlawful possession of a firearm. He is alleged to have had possession of a 9mm handgun the day before Gareth Hutch was shot.

Yesterday, Garda Chief Superintendent Pat Leahy objected to bail on a number of grounds and said the 29-year-old could yet face a more serious charge.

On Tuesday, 44-year-old Mary McDonnell, who lives in the Avondale House flat complex, was charged with withholding information in relation to the shooting.
