Monday, 8th October, 2018 10:28am

Two men are due to appear before the Special Criminal Court in Dublin this morning charged in connection with the murder of Aidan O’Driscoll in 2016.
A garda spokesman said that the men, aged 24 and 32, were arrested in Cork this morning. 
Nicknamed 'The Beast', O’Driscoll was shot on the Old Commons Road in Blackpool village on 7 December 2016, not far from the entrance of Orchard Court and The Church of the Annunciation at about 5pm.
O’Driscoll is said to have received gunshot wounds in the lower back and kidneys. He was taken to CUH where he underwent emergency surgery but was pronounced dead shortly before 7pm that same day. 
Gardaí had sealed off the area that evening for several hours and over the next few weeks continued with the investigation conducting door to door interviews with residents living on the Old Commons Road as well as urging anyone with information to come forward.
They had asked locals if they had CCTV or dashcam footage from that day and evening or if they had seen anything suspicious or out the ordinary in the run up to the fatal shooting.
