Murder of Shane Geoghegan

Murdered: Shane Geoghegan

Gardaí in Roxboro Road in Co. Limerick are investigating the murder of 28 year old Shane Geoghegan in the early hours of Sunday 9th of November 2008.


Shane lived in the Kilteragh Estate in Dooradoyle, just outside Limerick city. Shane left his friend’s home in the Ard Bracken estate at around 1am. He was almost at his own home in Clonmore when he was shot at by a gunman who followed him across the street to the back of a house where he was shot a number of times and fatally wounded.  The gunman ran to the passenger side of a navy blue people carrier. This vehicle left the Kilteragh estate and turned left onto the Main Dooradoyle Road.


Gardaí found a burnt out Renault Espace at Mill Lane in the Rossbrien area. They believe this may have been the people carrier used to transport the gunman. It was stolen on the 16th of October from the Kilonan/Ballysimon area of Limerick. The car was seen parked at an apartment complex in Ballycummin. It was last seen outside Block B at 6:30pm on the 8th of November 2008. It had left the car space by 8:30pm. Gardaí are appealing for information in relation to this vehicle and to anyone who may have witnessed this brutal killing.


Shane’s Mother and Girlfriend as well as family members and friends make an emotional appeal on tonight’s programme for the public’s assistance in bringing Shane’s killers to justice.
