A Criminal Assets Bureau target has been jailed after leading a vigilante-style attack on a house and threatening a woman.

Liam Walters, also known as William Lyons, admitted his role in the terrifying incident last February in which a gang of masked men forced their way into the house in Co Limerick.

At a recent Circuit Court hearing in Limerick, it emerged that 11 men with their faces covered arrived at the house at Cois Rioga, Caherconlish on February 17.

Some were carrying weapons, including pitchforks and hurleys, as they forced their way into the house where a number of young children were present at the time.

Walters pleaded guilty to burglary, making threats to kill and violent disorder relating to the incident which stemmed from an earlier disagreement he had with the woman’s partner.

He was described as directing “operations” and had threatened to return and kill the woman.

Windows at the house and a car parked there were smashed by members of the gang during the attack.

Gardai who searched his home at Mount Singland in Limerick after he was identified as a suspect described it as a fortress.

Footage taken from his home’s CCTV showed the men arriving before leaving for Caherconlish in two cars.

It also emerged how Walters had made an attempt to leave the country after the incident but was stopped at Dublin Airport because he did not have the proper Covid-19 paperwork.

An offer of €10,000 in compensation had been rejected by the victim of the attack.

Walters was given a two-and-a-half year sentence.

A charge of aggravated burglary and criminal damage against Walters were dropped by the State.
