Gardaí continue to appeal for information following the fatal shooting of Michael Tormey in Ballyfermot in the early hours of yesterday morning, Sunday (Jan 9), and are particularly keen to speak to motorists or taxi drivers who may have relative dash-cam recordings.

The deceased, a father of two, had no known connections to crime/or involvement with criminal activities.

Gardaí have not established a firm motive for the shooting, but are investigating the possibility that the victim was targeted following an incident which occurred when the late Mr Tormey and his family were out socialising. 

It is believed person/s called to Mr Tormey’s residence at Thomond Road in Ballyfermot, in the early hours of Sunday morning, where the victim received several gunshot wounds. He was later pronounced dead at the scene.

Mr Tormey was then taken to the City Morgue, Whitehall where a post-mortem was carried out by State Pathologist Margot Bolster;  members of the Garda Technical Bureau concluded its examination at the scene of the shooting and carried out door-to-door enquiries.

Gardaí are appealing for anyone with information or road users who may have camera footage (including dash-cam) in relation to this incident to come forward. 

In particular, anyone who may have been in the Thomond Road, Landen Road, Kylemore Road or the general ‘Decies’ area between 3.30am – 5.30am on Sunday last (Jan 9). Gardaí can be contacted at Ballyfermot Garda Station on 01 666 7200, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111 or any Garda station.
Dublin Gazette extend our deepest sympathy to the late Mr Tormey’s wife and children, and the extended family. May he rest in peace, amen.
