Murder of Mark Noonan and Glen Murphy on the 23/11/10

The Gardaí at Finglas Garda Station are continuing to investigate the double murder of Mark Noonan and Glen Murphy that occurred on Tuesday the 23rd November 2010 at approximately 11.42pm at Tesco Clearwater Service Station, Finglas, Dublin 11.

Both men travelled to the service station in Mark’s Toyota Avensis car registration number 05D86211. A BMW saloon vehicle registration number 06D13665 pulled into the forecourt of the service station and a number of shots were discharged from the vehicle wounding and killing both men who died at the scene. The BMW drove out of the service station and travelled onto the Finglas dual carriage way. They travelled onto the M50 and exited at the M50/M1 Junction. They travelled up the M1 and drove through the M1 Toll Plaza at Drogheda, Co. Meath.


• Gardaí are appealing to anyone with information in relation to this case to come forward. Four years on, this case is still very sensitive for the victim’s families especially in the knowledge that it was a case of mistaken identity.

• Crimecall’s assistance has proven invaluable in the past in relation to this investigation and it is hoped will continue to be of further assistance on this occasion. This case is a live investigation with leads being actively pursued including information received during the last appeal. 

• Investigators believe that many persons of interest to this investigation have left the jurisdiction in recent years. However they are satisfied that there are those who remain within the jurisdiction that are in a position to assist the investigation.

• In particular they are appealing to partners and associates, who at the time of this double murder had forged relationships with the people involved and who may now be in a position to assist Gardaí.
