Gardaí have charged a man extradited from the UK with the murder of David ‘Daithi’ Douglas in Dublin city in 2016.

Mr. Douglas was shot dead while working with his daughter in his partner’s shoe shop on Bridgefoot Street.

 

David ‘Daithi’ Douglas was shot six times when a gunman entered the shoe shop at about 4pm on July 1st 2016.

The father-of-one was a known drug dealer with links to the Hutch family, whose feud with the Kinahan cartel was at its height at the time.

Lee Canavan, a 31yo man of no fixed abode, was extradited from the UK yesterday and charged with Mr. Douglas’ murder.

He’s also accused of causing criminal damage to a car three days later.

Det Sergeant Mark Kelly told the court today he said ‘no comment” when the charges were put to him.

Bail applications for murder cases can only be heard by a High Court judge, so Mr. Canavan was remanded in custody today.

He’s due to appear in court again next week.
