Gang boss Dundon sparks jail turf war

01:51 |

Dublin jail is in crisis as prison officers struggle to keep feuding gangs away from each other. Wheatfield Prison is engulfed in violence after a turf war broke out between inmates that has led to a number of knife attacks and serious assaults. Jail insiders say that a faction of Traveller criminals led by jailed Limerick hood Ger Dundon (24) are at war with a number of other gangs in the prison, sparking a major security alert. Sources say that other gangs have decided to go to war with the Traveller faction, which has led to a huge increase in violence. Dundon, a leading member of the infamous McCarthy/Dundon gang, was sentenced to five years in February of last year for violent disorder -- his 100th criminal conviction. A source said: "Ger Dundon is controlling these Travellers and instigating attacks. It is all about turf; there is almost a stabbing every day now." The Herald has learned that 170 weapons -- the vast majority being improvised knives ('shivs') -- have been seized in Wheatfield this year. Shivs can cause horrific injuries and are understood to have been used in the latest gang-related brawl to break out, on Saturday evening. Dozens of prisons officers were forced to intervene when 14 prisoners got involved in the fight, which led to one prisoner being stabbed in the neck. Latest investigations in the west Dublin jail established that there are now 21 separate gangs operating there, many of which have been sucked into the on-going violence. "The levels of violence are quite terrifying and Ger Dundon has been playing a major role in it," said a source. In one of the most serious incidents last week, an inmate required 180 stitches after being stabbed. The 28-year-old Dubliner was sliced in the face, neck, head and chest by rival thugs on the jail's 3G wing. This is the same wing on which notorious double-killer Gary Howard is based, but he is not suspected of involvement. Howard is serving two life sentences at Wheatfield after being convicted of the murders of Patrick Mooney (58) and Brendan Molyneaux (46) on January 10, 2010.
