Gang members who have safety fears have been told to come forward and seek protection from the police in the wake of a second shooting in Dublin.
Speaking after a second man was shot in what is believed to have been a 'reprisal attack' Justice Minister Frances Fitzgerald urged anyone with fears to speak to the gardai.
She said: "Tonight's fatal shooting in Dublin is another deplorable example of the ruthlessness of gangland criminals. It seems that some gangs are intent on waging a feud where human life counts for nothing.
"The gardai will take all necessary steps to try to prevent further bloodshed but we have to recognise the challenges they face. Members of gangs who have fears for their safety should come forward to the gardai."

The Continuity IRA has claimed responsibility for a masked shooting at a boxing weigh-in in Dublin and has threatened further attacks on "criminals", according to reports.
One man was killed and two people were injured when attackers burst in to the event at the city's Regency Hotel on Friday, where up to 300 people had gathered.
In a statement to BBC News, a man claiming to speak on behalf of the Continuity IRA said the man who died had been targeted for his alleged involvement in the killing of a leading member of dissident republican group the Real IRA.
The six-man gang that carried out the Dublin attack was said to include one disguised as a woman wearing an "auburn wig", while others wore police costumes.
They opened fire in the hotel's lobby, sending bystanders running for their lives.
Amateur footage of the attack posted to YouTube showed the gunfire breaking out just after a weigh-in for a World Boxing Organisation (WBO) title fight between Jamie Kavanagh and Antonio Jao Bento, due to take place on Saturday.
