A former Sinn Fein councillor has been jailed for four years for helping a crime gang to murder David Byrne in a shooting at Dublin’s Regency Hotel.

Jonathan Dowdall (44) had the sentence handed down at the Special Criminal Court today.

A sentence hearing is continuing for his father Patrick Dowdall (56). Both men, from Navan Road, Cabra had pleaded guilty to facilitating the gangland killing by making a room in the hotel available to a criminal organisation.

Mr Byrne (34), a Crumlin father-of-two and Kinahan gang member was shot dead when armed raiders stormed the hotel during a boxing weigh-in on February 5, 2016.

His murder sparked the ongoing Kinahan-Hutch feud.

Patrick Dowdall had booked a room in the hotel for use by the gang and the father and son drove to hand over the keys over to criminals the day before the fatal attack.

Jonathan Dowdall had originally been charged with murder but that was withdrawn by the prosecution after he pleaded guilty to the lesser offence.

He has since made himself available as a prosecution witness in the upcoming trial of Gerard “The Monk” Hutch, who is charged with Mr Byrne’s murder.

Mr Hutch is due to go on trial tomorrow, alongside Paul Murphy (59) and Jason Bonney (50), who are charged with facilitating the murder by providing the crime gang with vehicles.
