Patrick Lyons Wiki – Patrick Lyons Bio

Patrick Lyons was shot five times as he was walking along Belclare Terrace in Ballymun in what appears to have been a targeted gun attack.

Gardaí are trying to establish a motive for the murder of a man near his home in Dublin last night.


He was 44 years old.

Patrick Lyons Shot Dead

Lyons was walking along a laneway near his home in Ballymun when he was shot an estimated five times by at least one attacker.

He leaves behind a 10-year-old son, who only last week lost his mother, Mr Lyons’ girlfriend.

Both Mr Lyons and his partner had a long history of drug use and had been long-term clients of local drug addiction services.

The victim, along with his son, lived with his own mother, who locals described as a “lovely lady”.

Mr Lyons was not considered a serious criminal or gangland figure and had convictions for relatively minor offences, such as theft and drug offences.

Sources said he may have been used as a scout and messenger by a local drug gang.


He lived with his mother and his young son whose mother, Patrick’s partner, also died just last week.


Detectives believe it’s likely the killing is linked to a local dispute.

Senior officers point out that in most cases drug addicts who cross dangerous criminals, break into the wrong house, steal something or owe a drug debt usually get attacked and beaten up.

The murder, gardaí say, represents the most extreme, brutal and disproportionate response to the type of drug-addicted crime that he was involved in and the type of person he was.
