MOBSTER Eric Fowler’s killer looks to be in the clear, it was revealed today.

The gangland feud victim’s inquest was told the Garda probe into the murder is nearly completed.

Inspector Liam Donoghue told Dublin District Coroner’s Court that a file should be ready within the next four weeks.

However, it is understood that nobody is likely to face criminal charges arising out of the 2018 shooting in Dublin.

Dad-of-two Fowler, 34, died after being ambushed by one or more gunmen who shot him several times — including once in the head — as he got out of his car after arriving  home in Blakestown Cottages, Coolmine, on December 22.

Fowler had links to the Kinahan cartel, although he had family connections which linked him to both sides of the Hutch-Kinahan feud.

He is believed to have been the 18th victim of the deadly feud between the two gangs which began with the murder of Gary Hutch in Spain in 2015 by the Kinahans.

Fowler — who operated a car wash and valeting business near his home in Coolmine —  had been warned on at least two occasions by the Gardai that his life was in danger.

Insp Donoghue was granted an adjournment of the inquest into the death by the Coroner Aisling Gannon

He told the court, which was attended by the victim’s mother, Therese, that he hoped to be able to schedule a full hearing of the inquest when the case comes up for mention in October.

Last year, Fowler’s dad, Stephen, was sentenced to five-and-a-half years’ jail for his role in the attempted murder by the Kinahan cartel of rival Hutch gangster James “Mago” Gately.

The Special Criminal Court heard Stephen, 62, picked up assassin Imre Arakas from a Dublin  hotel ahead of the planned hit.
