A man who admitted supplying guns and getaway cars which were used in a shooting that injured three men outside a pub in Dublin has been jailed for ten years.
Alan Wilson, with a last known address at New Street Gardens, Dublin 8, initially went on trial for attempted murder as the suspected gunman.
On July 26th 2010, the doorman and two patrons of The Players Lounge Pub in Dublin were shot by a masked man armed with two guns.
Alan Wilson became a suspect following a separate investigation into the Kinahan organised crime group.
Unbeknown to him, his car was bugged and he was heard telling a friend that he was the gunman.
He later put it down to “bravado” and claimed he hadn’t actually shot them and was just trying to impress his friend.
He went on trial for attempted murder but his plea to the lesser charge of conspiring to carry out the murders was accepted and he was jailed for 10 years today.
Before he was sentenced, his barrister told the court that Wilson is a different person now. He said he’s at a different stage in his life and is writing poetry.
The 42-year-old, who’s already in prison for his role in a gang-related attempted murder in 2017, denies ever being a member of the Kinahan organised crime group.
