RTE reports that the incident is believed to be linked to the ongoing feud in Drogheda, which also claimed the life of Keith Brannigan in Clogherhead, Co Louth in August.

"There have been dozens of other incidents in the long-running dispute, which centres on control of the drugs trade in the town," reports RTE.

Gardaí in Ashbourne are investigating the incident.
