The Garda leading the investigation into the murder of Keane Mulready-Woods says anyone taking recreational drugs is fuelling gangland murder.

The 17-year-old was murdered as part of the ongoing gang feud in Drogheda, Co Louth.

On Newstalk Breakfast with Susan Keogh this morning, Garda Chief Superintendent Christy Mangan told said the brutal murder should be a reality check for everyone.

He said that if you go out and buy €100 worth of cocaine on a Saturday night, you are "providing profits for these people who are using that money to buy guns, to shoot people and to contract out killings."

"They need to realise coke is not a recreational pursuit - it's an act that fuels the murder of children like Keane and other people."
